Although I had done a ton of research before going and had a notebook of things to do/see etc. there were many things not in my book that you'd find in any Paris guidebook. For example going to the Louvre - a no brainer. Tuileries wasn't in my radar at all but one day Alex and I decided to go to "Le Carrousel du Louvre". This is a "mall" below the Louvre. I believe their website says there are 45 stores...felt more like 20 but it passed the time.
On our way there we strolled through Tuileries Garden which is right next door. It was a lovely day and there were a ton of people there. It's a lovely place and nice to get away from the asphalt, people and traffic.

Its my understanding that Paris isn't the only city that does this annually but it was new to me. We missed seeing the numerous "zombies" on their walk but spent quite a long time watching them prepare for their journey.
