I will be the first to admit that I am not a shopper; it is just not something I enjoy. But I can appreciate the care and time it takes for shopkeepers to fix magnificent displays for those who enjoy browsing when they travel. The shopping district of Evian, a pedestrian only (no cars) area, is one of those places that I enjoyed walking through because of the wonderful displays. It was Easter and it seemed they all have spring themes in their windows and in the displays that spill out into the walkway in front of the shops. From what I could tell, the prices were not bad either – nothing stood out at gouging the tourist.
I walked through this section just about every day on my way to a little boulangerie (bakery) that I had discovered the first night. I would stroll through the pedestrian area and return to my hotel by walking along the lake. It made for a pleasant time and something I found myself looking forward to each day.
Walk around town and you'll find plenty of shops in the market- all are interesting, many locals are artistic (dance schools, accessories, handbags, etc)
