Hauts-de-France is a region in northern France located near the Belgian border. It's home to a variety of landscapes, from rolling hills and lush forests to the white cliffs of Calais and sandy beaches. Historical landmarks abound, including Notre Dame Cathedral in Amiens and the Palace of Versailles in Saint-Quentin.

For those seeking culture, there are plenty of museums to explore as well, such as the Louvre Lens or the Abbaye de Saint-Riquier. For outdoor activities, Le Parc Naturel des Caps et Marais d'Opale offers hiking trails and birdwatching opportunities galore. The city of Lille also features numerous attractions like its Grand Place with baroque architecture and cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants.

Finally, no visit would be complete without experiencing some local history; one popular historical site is Chateau de Montreuil-sur-Mer in Pas de Calais which dates back to 1295 when it was established by King Philip IV.
