PARIS, TEXAS: The lowest fare to America for Parisians is available at the Jardin d’Acclimatation, a children’s park just 15 minutes from the Eiffel Tower. For 2.70 euros, or about $3.50, visitors can take in an “Americans in Paris” event organized by the park with the support of the American Embassy. Dotted with icons like the Statue of Liberty, the park allows visitors to try a few dunks on the basketball court, learn the basics of baseball, listen to country music, watch cheerleaders shake their pom-poms and sample specialties like cheesecake or hotdogs. And no one leaves the park without a photograph of a yellow cab, a State Patrol car or a Texaco gas station. “Americans in Paris,” which attracted 50,000 visitors its first three days, runs until May 10.
