If you love Barcelona when on an “adult holiday” then you will still love it when you bring the kids with you on your next visit; they will love it too. One thing you will not is that it is possible to engage in some grown-up fun without having to leave the children behind. It is common to find parents have small talk and sipping beers on a terrace as they watch the kids play around. Here are some of the things you can do to make the most of the holiday time when in Barcelona with the kids.
The La Rambla is as much a spectacle for the visitors as it is for the locals. Street performances held on a pedestrian boulevard run through the day and into the night. Acts include flame throwers, fire-eaters, human statues, and flamenco dancers among others. It is a place filled with free family entertainment.
If your kids do not fear heights, then taken them atop the Monument a Colom where they can have a spectacular view of the city below and the harbor. Alternatively, you can opt to take them on a Transbordador Aeir Cable ride. The cable cars roles over the city to the harbor; the ride connects La Barceloneta with Montjuïc
The good thing about water world is you do not have to worry about the kids getting wet. They will go crazy as they have fun taking part in various activities such as playing in the carousel or getting into the prototype submarine. The Water World is home to thousands of fish and an 80m long aquarium, which is a shark tunnel.
Museum may be an adult’s idea of fun, but there are several museums that also pay attention to children. Such museums offer educational exhibits in a fun way that captures the kids’ imagination. For creepy wax statues, chocolaty artworks, and cool audiovisual displays to education shows and children workshops, the Museu Maritim is where parents take their kids to learn and have fun.
A Ferris wheel ride and a scary horror house are examples of the twisted fun and scary things that the Parc d’Atraccions has in store for all visitors. The kids will either love the scary fun or be utterly dismayed, which might also happen to most adults. The Hotel Kruger is a horror house with ghouls and leaping ghosts that make hairs stand with fear.
Make A Splash
The Barcelona beach is one place that offers loads of fun activities under the sun. From sunbathing, building castles, and play beach games, to taking a dip in the seas; the beach is a fun place where the kids and let loose and make a splash. If you find the beach too crowded, and your family is in the mood of getting wet and having fun in the water, then head to any of the city’s pools.
A Day At Park Güell
After a few days of touring and sightseeing, the children may not be in the mood for too much travel though they would still love to be out of the hotel room. Take them to the park for a picnic and relaxation. The older kids will be intrigued by the weirdness of the park, and the energetic toddlers will love play in the vast grassland and playgrounds.
