Keeping the kids entertained on a family trip is important- if the kids are having a fantastic time, so are you (and if they’re not, well, that’s when the difficulties begin). Luckily, if you’re planning a trip to France with the family, then this great destination has a host of exciting things to see and do to keep the boredom at bay.
- Visit Dordogne
Located in central France, this is an absolute gem for families. It has everything to offer families of all ages, including cultural attractions like castles and cave paintings, but also has its fair share of amusement parks to keep the kids entertained, too. If you’re looking for a healthy mix of history, culture, and excitement, then Dordogne has it.
- Experience the Magic at Disneyland Paris
No family trip to France would be complete without visiting Disneyland Paris – and no child would ever forgive you if you didn’t! Experience the magic at this theme park by finding great deals online for Disneyland tickets for the family and make sure you decide how long you can comfortably spend there, as some deals offer 2-day park tickets as opposed to one.
Check the events happening at Disneyland during the time of your trip, as often there may be a parade or a firework display that you and your family wouldn’t want to miss.
- Rent a Bike
France is the perfect country to hit the tracks and take a bike ride. If you can eliminate public transport or car travel and hire a bike to get around instead, this a great (and a healthy) family activity, which will also help you to explore the stunning scenery.
There are many stunning landmarks you can plan to hire a bike to visit, such as the tidal island of Mont-Saint Michel, so if your family is more exploration-oriented and likes to stay active, hiring a bike in France is a must.
- Take in the French Alps
If your family holiday with the kids is going to be a winter adventure, then you’ll need the perfect location for that: and nothing could be more perfect than the winter wonderland of the French Alps.
You will find a host of family-friendly activities within the French Alps ski resorts, such as skiing and tobogganing, perfectly safe for children from the age of four upwards.
If winter sports aren’t your family’s thing, then you also have the option of a waterpark in the form of Les Arc’s aqua park, complete with pools and slides to keep the whole family entertained – and offering spectacular views of the mountain surroundings.
- Enjoy the Sun in the French Riviera
If all the talk of winter sports has you feeling a little cold, you can instead experience sun, sea, and sand in the gorgeous French Riviera. If you want your family holiday to be planned around relaxing by the beach, then Nice can offer spectacular, family-friendly beaches, enjoyable promenade walks and plenty to explore in the surrounding areas.
