Friday Photo - Tour de France Roadside Art

Roadside art by farmers along the Tour de France route
France is the world's most visited country, with about 80 million tourists each year, 10 million more than second place United States. One factor drawing visitors is the beautiful views of the French countryside during the Tour de France. In France it is a big honor to have the race pass through your city or region. Many of the farmers along the route create displays like the one shown above, from the 2014 Tour de France. This one had farm tractors creating the motion of the wheels. Here's a video of a similar design from 2011 in action.

  1. I do agree with you that France is the world's most visited country. Me and my husband are also planning our summer vacations in France. We will stay there for 15 days. What are main attraction for visiting in France? Any suggestions please?
