The national capital Paris is located 120 miles (193 kilometers) west of Sainte-Menehould.
When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your precious vacation time, it's worth keeping in mind that Sainte-Menehould is merely the tip of the iceberg; Champagne-Ardenne has been blessed with an abundance of wonderful places to visit. Issoncourt, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest, and Les Trois-Domaines, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest of Sainte-Menehould are also well worth checking out.
Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east of Sainte-Menehould is Verdun, an important regional center where you'll find Andre Maginot Memorial, Monument de la Victoire and Ossuaire de Douaumont. Fort de Souville, Musee-Memorial de Fleury and Fort de Vaux are some other interesting attractions worth investigating for those who have time left.
For a low-cost outdoors activity that will interest the entire family, be sure to head to the region's open-air markets. Head to Champagne-Ardenne's art museums, history museums and art galleries. These are excellent spots to spend time, particularly when the weather is unpleasant.
Traveling to new destinations sometimes encourages the daredevil in travelers. If you're up for a challenge, try hot air ballooning.
Before you head back to your friends at home, you'll be bidding this special place a sad Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
