Family Travel Question:
Q | We are finally taking our kids to Europe. What shouldn’t we miss?
When you plan to take the kids to Europe, remember to consider how much time you have, the ages of your children, and what their interests are.
A | Don’t miss Paris with kids
Paris ranks high on most adult’s European wish lists, but did you know that it is also a wonderful destination for kids? True, your kids might not be excited about the Louvre’s art, but have them check out the Medieval Fortress footings in the basement. As a reward for putting up with the sculpture collection, buy a crepe on the street and spend the afternoon in Luxembourg Gardens, where the playgrounds are among the best I’ve seen anywhere. Other great activities include river cruises, a tour through the Paris sewers, and of course the pastry shops.
For local kid-focused entertainment (including old fashioned Punch-and-Judy style puppet shows) pick up a guide at a newsstand, or check out the Paris Visitor Bureau Website.
