Brussels, Belgium's capital without doubt and capital of the European Union in the minds of many, is a popular destination of diplomats and business people. But don't let that lead you to believe there is nothing more to Brussels than a cluster of office blocks, because you would be mistaken.

Beach parties, barbecues, picnics, water sports, volleyball, and street concerts are held during this month. If a trip to the ocean is not in your travel plans, this event is a great way to enjoy the beach even when you're land-locked in the city.

I recommend it. ... more
