Paris!

Dear Linguaphiles,

I am going to Paris with my friend (both 18) in July for one week. We live in the US, Massachusetts to be exact. What I would like to know is, what are good things to know before going to Paris? Different common sense tips, advice, things to look out for, what to avoid, etc.
Neither of us are fluent in French, however she knows more than I do. And yes, I am aware that most people will probably speak at least some English anyways.
So.. advice anyone?
