When you hear “France,” Paris is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Yes, the French capital has earned its incredible reputation, but there are so many special cities to visit in France. Planning a France vacation with kids by our tips.
Things to Do in France with Kids
Without a doubt Disneyland Park will make it onto most families’ France itinerary. Only a short way from Paris, the amusement park makes for a great family day trip from busy sightseeing in the capital. Try Parc Asterix for an amusement park with a much more French feel. The attractions here are themed for the Gaul hero from the French tales of Asterix.
If the weather is nice, take the kids to Aquaboulevard de Paris, the biggest urban water park in Europe. The kids will love playing in the two wave pools, or zipping down the 11 adrenaline-inducing waterslides. The water park also contains a sandy beach to give you the feel of being on the Mediterranean coast just a stone’s throw from all that Paris has to offer.
To infuse a bit of culture into your France sightseeing with kids, visit Mont-Saint-Michel, where both the town and the monastery look as if they came straight out of a fairytale. Aquarium La Rochelle, the largest aquarium in the country, keeps kids entertained with 75 distinct tanks featuring fish, marine creatures, and ecosystems of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans.
Take a trip to the Haribo Museum, where your children will no doubt enjoy learning about how some of their favorite candies are made (and tasting along the way). Such a diverse country, France offers endless activities to interest children.
