    'Because my lab wasn't so busy, I could visit some tourist atractions/sightseeing spots during my stay in Paris.'

    Hi Amy,

    I'm not a native speaker, but I would only say:
    ..I could visit some tourist attractions during my stay in Paris. OR
    ..I could visit some sights during my stay in Paris.

    I also see no need to repeat the word "spot"

    I, personally, would also change the could to "was able to visit" or simply, "visited".
