Paris is the city for lovers but it is also a great destination if you are traveling with kids. The city has a lot of sights for the family whether you love good food, arts, culture, and history. Here are some kid-friendly Paris destinations:
Bois de Boulogne
The Bolougne Woods used to be a forest where the royalties of France used to hunt for wild boars, deer, and wolves. It is not wise to go to the woods still but families can enjoy the fresh air and the open spaces. You can go the the lake in the park and rent bikes or paddle boats. When the kids get hungry, there is the Le Chalet des Iles, a fancy, magical restaurant.
This is another royal ground in the olden times but is now a great family destination. Kids and parents alike will enjoy the medieval Chateau de Vincennes and the Parc Floral de Paris. There are also puppet shows, cotton candy stalls, bike rides, and paddle boats around the park.
The Centre Pompidou
Locals call it the Beauborg. It has a wacky architecture and has been known as a culture supermarket in Paris. For its colorful exterior pipes, the Parisians called it Our Lady of the Pipes. The yard in front of the building is also buzzing with activities that kids might find interesting. We are talking about fire-eaters, mimes, musicians, and sword-swallowers.
The wide street known as Les Champs to locals has evolve into a high-rent, bustling commercial district with its sidewalks serving as parking lots. A quiet stroll and a bit of shopping is what this place can offer for families.
Jardin du Luxembourg
The Jardin du Luxembourg has a lot to offer for the family. A grand palace, big trees, pony rides, sailboats, and tennis courts. There is also the famous merry-go-round and the wooden animals by Charles Garnier.
