Activities and Family Activities in Paris
Puppet shows, circuses, magicians, storytellers, and singers. So many quality performances for great family outings! Once again this year, there is a huge choice for little ones. In Paris, many places specialize in activities for children.
And cultural surprises are in store for kids too with big exhibitions, as well as trade shows. Like the famous and much-loved ‘Pestacles’ children’s festival at the Parc Floral, the majority of shows outdoors (Paris Plages, Festival Paris Quartier d’Eté, etc.) are open to children and are the opportunity to get together for a family picnic.
Finally, the Art workshops at some museums such as the Louvre, Orsay, the Musée en Herbe, the Palais de Tokyo and the Centre Pompidou, may make your kids into famous artists. Paris has so much choice to keep children occupied, familiarize them with art, and offer them many wonderful surprises.
With short hops around town you can’t do much better than a velib. This urban bike rental scheme, the name appropriately meaning bicycle freedom (vélo-liberté). There are hundreds of Velib stations distributed around Paris which allow you to use a credit card to buy a daily or weekly subscription.
