We have had some lovely family holidays in the past and we are currently in the process of planning our next trip. In 2018 we went to Oliva and had some days relaxing by the pool and day trips out to the local area. We do like to explore as a family and be able to show E and M more of the world when we visit different countries.
There are so many places and experiences we would like to not only introduce to the boys but experience as a family too. One of these places is Valencia. We did manage to visit for a day trip on our last holiday but we didn’t manage to explore much. It is still a nice day but did you know there are so many things to see in Valencia with children?
Child-friendly places to visit in Valencia
A giant playground, what’s not to love? The body and clothes of the giant are used as parts of the playground as steps and slides and amazingly, it is made to scale so everyone playing looks just like Lilliputians! Definitely sounds like a fun place for all the family.
Bioparc Valencia is a zoo that has natural habitats for the animals. You can see gorillas, crocodiles and tigers. It is a small zoo making it perfect for little legs as there isn’t too much walking to get around. You can find tickets and offers on Visit Valencia, it is always a great idea to check out sites such as this before booking to help you plan your trip and get the best prices for different attractions.
If you have curious little ones, you need to take a trip to The Principe Felipe Science Museum for some educational fun. With diverse activities that encourage children to get involved, they will get to learn some new things as well as have lots of fun too.
Turia Gardens Cycle Trail
If you like to keep active, head to Turia Gardens and follow the bike paths to explore Valencia by cycle! As it is set in a park, you can take time out in the playground or relax with a picnic on the grounds.
Parc Municipal La Granja
This is something my boys would love. It has a miniature railway that you can ride on. The best part is it doesn’t just go around in a loop, it has a turntable and ticket booths, a tunnel, a bridge and several stations.
