3 Tips to Keep in Mind While Vacationing With Kids in Paris
Paris: while it may have a reputation as a romantic city, it?s not just couples visiting. Many families, in fact, will be visiting France?s most popular city sometime this year!
Not surprisingly, traveling and visiting sites with children requires a unique approach. You can?t just pop in to the local bar for a drink after dinner when you have kids in tow, after all — and walking around the city for hours every day can be very difficult for parents of young children, even if there is a stroller involved.
How can you have a great experience with kids while traveling in Paris? Here are a few important tips to keep in mind.
1. Opt for Paris Luxury Apartment Rentals
Things you don?t want to have to do with kids: take long taxi rides, crowd into a tiny hotel room, deal with a lack of normal amenities (snacks, television, etc). If you?re traveling to Paris with kids, it can definitely be worth it to rent out luxury apartments that have everything you need. In the end, an apartment with even a basic kitchen will help you save a lot of money when you?re dealing with children who just want noodles with butter anyway. Save the escargot for yourself.
2. Choose Fun Activities for Kids
Chances are, your young ones won?t get too excited about a wine tour trip to Bordeaux. Luckily, there are a lot of fun, kid friendly activities you can try out in Paris. Kids enjoy things like bike tours, food tours, the Paris Catacombs, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, the Natural History Museum, and the numerous public parks. You don?t need to look far for something that kids can do here! If you?re not sure, just consult with the concierge service of wherever you?re staying and they are sure to have suggestions.
3. Invest in a Babysitter
Paris IS a romantic city, and you?re not going to want to spend the entire time with your kids, sorry-not-sorry. Even parents need some alone time! Invest in a babysitter for a night or two so that you can get some much needed alone time. Then do a quick Google search and find a great restaurant and perhaps an intimate, romantic bar to visit afterward together. Who knows where the evening will bring you!
