According to Paris’ website, it is “a place where a short stroll, a single bite, or a quiet moment of reflection can magically transport you through space and in time.”

The town is known for a couple of defining features including cobblestone, historic buildings, artisan boutiques, and views of the Grand River!

According to Paris, this small but mighty area is known as the “cobblestone capital of Canada” because of all the aged cobblestone homes and structures that make up the town.
