French or Ducht side

One thing to note is that the French side is mostly closed on Sundays.

If you want something that isn't much different than the USA, then the Dutch side.  So Dutch side for gambling and KFC--more of a resort relaxation vacation.  French side for a cultural change, a more interesting exeprience, and better food.  It just depends on what you are seeking for your vacation time.
