If you enjoy travelling to laid back, relaxing parts of the world, Lyon is a great place to visit. I found the people very friendly, and there was just a nice, relaxed vibe to this city...

Some of the highlights were:

Bridges and water - there are lots of lovely bridges to walk across, and the city is surrounded by a few major rivers.

Bike trails - there is a beautiful bike trail around the river, a great way to take in the city...it was also a perfect way for us to burn off all the devine food we'd been eating!

Les Halles de Lyon - this is an awesome indoor/roofed food hall with lots of french fare to try (check out this story for some great food we found in Les Halles de Lyon)

Vietnamese food - Lyon also has a strong Vietnamese/Chinatown area...so if you are craving for some good pho (Vietnamese beef noodle soup), you will certainly find some good Vietnamese cuisine in Lyon.

Outdoor food markets - there are outdoor food markets throughout Lyon - these markets are a great way to experience Lyon like the locals do - you can mingle with the locals and eat Lyon speciality dishes and snacks.

Cooking schools/cooking lessons - a fun way to experience Lyon is to immerse yourself in a local cooking class. If you are daring enough, you can experience the lesson in French too! Classes in English are also generally available.
