#1 RIDE ALL THE CAROUSELS IN TOWN
For younger children, a trip on a merry-go-round is a favorite Parisian past time. Carousels can be found in the following locations: Please see our PARIS TOP 10 Ultimate Family Guide for more details.
#2 EXPLORE THE OLDEST PARK IN PARIS: JARDIN DES TUILERIES
There’s plenty to do in the Tuileries, with its playgrounds, cafes, pony rides, sandboxes, skateboard, and rollerblade practice areas, a puppet theatre, toy boat rentals, and of course a carousel.
#3 SAIL THE WOODEN BOATS IN JARDIN DES TUILLERIES
These adorable hand-made wooden boats can be rented on Wednesday, weekends and during school holidays.
#4 MUSEE DU LOUVRE
Billed as the world’s largest museum in the word, the Musee du Louvre is just a brief walk away from the Jardin des Tuileries. Turn your visit into a scavenger hunt and have the kids try to discover the Mona Lisa. Ask the front desk for their free museum color-coded maps ( maps are available in over eight languages) and try to find the Mona Lisa. The family fun can’t be beat.
#5 LA TOUR EIFFEL
A must-see for anyone, three-years old and up. The Eiffel Tower is one of the many reasons why Paris is the world’s most romantic city — especially after sundown when the lights fizzle like a glass of champagne for 10 minutes every hour until 2 a.m.
