Picture Perfect: Paris In Love at the Hôtel de Ville

Paris and love seem synonymous. No wonder Paris' City Hall, the Hôtel de Ville de Paris, is holding an exhibition of photos of "Paris in Love" through July 3lst. If you miss this one, you may want to check out the ornate venue in the future. Originally, it took 95 years to build the this administrative hall, then, in 1871, extremists burnt it to a stone shell. Rebuilding this glorious structure required another 19 years, and it's been the site of many historical moments. During the Liberation of Paris, Charles de Gaulle gave his speech from the front window.

Picture this: Parents magazine is running a Picture Perfect Summer Sweepstakes, and the winner receives $5,000. That's enough to cover a trip to Paris and see the exhibit. Click, click, and enter.
