Valencia with kids

If they are happy, you are happier.

Okay, ask this: 

What do you need to make your trip to Valencia with children a success? 

A trip organised by adults with children is not always what the little ones are expecting and then what happens, well, happens… 

They don’t want to know, they drag their feet, they are hungry all the time, they are tired… “I'm bored, my backpack is heavy, I'm thirsty...” and you are trying to lead the way. You’re frazzled by the end of the day, you want to get them to sleep, and you’re thinking... “Why did we even bother leaving the house?” 

What a plan. 

Your holiday time should be for having fun, laughing, and discovering new things that let you disconnect and help them grow as people. 

Well, here comes the good news: 

 

Valencia with kids is the perfect city to come back home from with a smile on your face.

You want to know why Valencia with kids is a guaranteed win?

It's friendly

Because the distances are short enough to reach any point of interest in a flash and getting around is easy-peasy because it is completely flat. 

It’s fun

Because it has activities for all tastes: for the creative ones, for the lively ones, for the quiet ones, for the artists, for the pleasure seekers… 

It's easy

Because it has a mild climate all year round, six months of beach season and internationally celebrated Mediterranean gastronomy. 

And now that you know why Valencia is a fabulous destination to come with your children, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Here are the must-sees in the city of the Turia.

Nine kilometres of flat green areas that cross the city along the length of the old Turia riverbed. It has a cycle lane, a special track for runners, football pitches and kiosk bars where you can have a bite to eat or maybe a vermouth, a true Valencian tradition.

Nature in its purest form, dreamy sunsets, boat trips and disconnection in capital letters. Like an urban oasis surrounded by rice fields and forest: that is the Albufera Natural Park, the place where paella was invented

The most enjoyable children's park, featuring a seventy-meter figure of Gulliver lying down. His body is full of slides, climbing ropes and ladders for children - playing the role of the inhabitants of Lilliput - to play on and have fun.

Enjoy in your own style miles and miles of distinguished beaches with blue flags. Relax by contemplating the sea from one of the many restaurants on the promenade or from the avant-garde Veles e Vents de la Marina building.
