Get There: Air France flies from most major US hub cities to Lyon with a quick layover in Paris. Lyon is the biggest regional hub for the Rhone Alps and the 3 Vallées. It’s also one of the centers of French food culture, which makes it a nice little place to work off your jet lag. Do some window-shopping as you wander through the narrow streets of town. Be sure to eat at a Buchon for delicious, traditional home-style meals from the region.
