To plan your trip to Paris,you'll need this Paris guide to help you find the best Paris family getaways and things to do in Paris.To enjoy the city break here.
Skip the big amusement parks
Tip:Bring swimsuits and towels.Our kids love the water area.
Forget Disneyland Paris.Head to the Jardin d’Acclimatation instead.It’s a much more authentically Parisian experience,easier to get to,and a lot less expensive,with a small entry fee and then pay-per-ride attractions.Go early,before the park gets crowded.
Stay up late
Tip:I especially enjoy walking at night after it’s rained.The reflections are magical.
A few years ago when we landed in Paris,my wife and two of the kids were jet-lagged and went to sleep early,but my oldest daughter and I felt wide awake.So we quietly left the apartment and walked all around the Eiffel Tower,the Champs du Mars,and the Trocadero area for two hours,including several trips around the Trocadero carousel.It was great one-on-one bonding,and we got to see more Parisian nightlife than we usually do.Since then,it’s become a tradition for the two of us:We always head over on our first night,and then once or twice a week after that.
