Things to see and do with kids in Paris

Paris Kids Attractions

Paris might be the most romantic city in the world but it's also well geared towards children. Parents will find there are endless activities and attractions to enjoy with their little ones.

Families can marvel at the glorious city views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, or head down the Champs Elysées for a spot of shopping, though they should beware of the tourist traps. Kids will love the miles of beach along the shores of the Seine River. Playing in the sun and splashing in the river has become a popular activity for families and children during the summer months. The Jardin des Tuileries is a great place to take the kids for a stroll and to let out some of their pent-up energy.

Paris is a haven for carousels, which can be found in various parks around the city, including the Parc du Champ de Mars, the Jardin Des Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens.

When the weather turns bad and outdoor activities are not an option, families can visit some of the exciting museums and indoor playgrounds dotted throughout this exciting city, such as the Ludimax, a giant indoor playground situated near St Germain-en Laye and Versailles, and the Aquaboulevard indoor waterpark.

Of course, kids won't let their parents forget the proximity of the magical Disneyland Paris and there are other famous amusement parks to visit, such as the Parc Asterix and France Miniature.
