Don't think that you need visa or green card for France if you are US citizen, only Schengen visa maybe.
Definition: A Schengen visa allows its holder to move freely in all the member states of the European Union who signed the Shengen agreement within the validity of the visa.
The Schengen Space: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithunia, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
Foreign citizens with valid residency permits in a Schengen country may travel freely in the Schengen space for up to 3 months as long as they hold valid recognised passports and valid residency status.
Great Britain HAS NOT signed the Schengen Agreement. Therefore, even if you hold a permanent or temporary residency permit to reside in the UK, i.e. even if you live here, you may still need a visa in order to enter the Schengen zone.
Be advised that a Schengen visa does not guarantee the entry clearance into the Schengen space.
As a national from one of the countries listed below, you do not need a schengen visa to go to France as long as your stay does not exceed 3 months
Andorra United States of America South Korea
Argentina Guatemala Nicaragua
Australia Honduras Norway
Bermuda Hong-Kong (blue passports only) Panama
Iceland Paraguay New Zealand
Brazil Israel Roumania
Brunei Japan San Marino
Bulgary Liechtenstein Singapour
Canada Macao Switzerland
Chile Malaysia Uruguay
Costa Rica Mexico Vatican
Croatia Monaco Venezuela
However you may be asked, either at the borders of entry or within the Schengen space, to produce proofs of financial means of support, hotel bookings or your return ticket to your country of residence.
Additionally, all foreigners wishing to travel to France must be in possession of a valid medical travel insurance that covers all eventual medical and repatriation costs.
NB: Nationals from Bermuda, even if visa-exempt to go to France, should contact the other Shengen countries to ascertain visa requirements.
