Why locals recommend it
There’s a cool energy here—especially at night. You can’t run at a fast pace because there are so many people out by the water, but if you start at République and go up to Quai de Jemmapes, past Jaurès, and further north to the Bassin de la Villette, it’s a fun run with an inspiring vibe. After your run, go for a drink at Le Pachyderme on Boulevard Saint-Martin in the evening, or for a croissant at Liberté in the morning. You will have earned it!
Tips from locals
Very popular area among parisians, great for walks, all pedestrian during the weekend, lots of bars and cafés !
We love to have a walk on the canal, and so many locals do! Many bars and restaurants are on both sides (a little more on the left side). During summer, you can buy food and drinks and sit on the canal!
Canal Saint-Martin is both a waterway and a trending area of Paris. The Canal Saint-Martin is a 4.6 km long canal in Paris, connecting the Canal de l'Ourcq to the river Seine.
