Roubaix is a city in northern France that's very close to the Belgian border. It's surrounded by seven places that make up its immediate neighboring area. These include Tourcoing, Wattrelos, Leers, Lys-lez-Lannoy, Hem and Croix. Roubaix was originally a provincial market town and then became a major textile city, thriving until its major industries dwindled in the 1970s. As Roubaix is part of the Lille metropolis, those looking for car rental in the city can find this with Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Lille's two locations. One is at Lille train station, 9 minutes away by train from the Gare de Roubaix. There's also an Enterprise branch at Lille Airport, around 14 miles from Roubaix and accessible via a line 2 train or a line 221 bus.
