Yes, your EU residence permit (whether as a family member of an EU citizen or not) allows you to travel to other Schengen states for 90 days out of every 180 days. You do not need a visa or any other special permissions for this itinerary.

    I would add that the same is true of any residence permit issued by any Schengen country.

    @DavidSupportsMonica no. To travel to another Schengen country, within the 90/180 rule, any Schengen residence permit will do. To travel to a non-Schengen EU country without a visa (or, technically, to exceed the 90/180 rule in Schengen) it must be a family member residence card and the traveler must be accompanied by (or joining) the family member. Otherwise, a Nigerian living in Geneva would have to get a visa to go shopping in France.
