People in Nord-Pas-de-Calais 
Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Don't visit in winter, unless you're prepared for grey drear. When I visited Calais it was to go to the hypermarket with the people I was staying with, so I can contest that there's good shopping there, despite not knowing much about the actual town! Also, when I went, a small sandstorm was whipping along the (ugly, cabin-lined) beach, so we couldn't see the cliffs of Dover.

Lille, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
The station of Lille is really beautiful, but one has to keep in mind that all this travelling attracts homeless people. When you are trying to get to your next train or when you are at the station just to look at the building, many homeless people will try to make you give them money, some of them are more agressive than others and many of them smell really bad. So try to keep in mind to not make eye-contact, usually they just leave you alone then.

Nord-Pas-de-Calais Arts & Recreation 
Valenciennes, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Le Camel à Leon café. The music's not too loud, the crowd is an interesting mix of artists, bankers, cops, and more. Abdel, the owner, exhibits a different artist's work every month or so, and just about all of it is for sale.

Food in Nord-Pas-de-Calais 
Boulogne-sur-Mer, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Boulogne-sur-Mer has a very nice youth hostel. The bars aren't that good, but with some booze, you can have a lot of fun at the beach at night.
