Barcelona for Families
– Magic Fountain. Hours vary according to season. But, the eruptions in water, light and color at the foot of the climb to the National Museum (at Montjuic) is sure to thrill both kids in their parents!
– The Chocolate Museum in El Born. An obvious choice this one, who doesn’t like chocolate?
Barcelona has low crimes rates for a city its size. Petty crime is the main problem, and pick-pockets do merit our attention. Make sure that any valuables are kept well out of reach from those attempting a quick “grab-and run”, and be on the look-out for unusual behavior. Sometimes pocket thieves use creative methods like pretending to help you remove a stain from your clothes etc. – basically any kind of excuse to divert your attention. Being aware of the problem and taking measures to avoid falling victim to pick-pocketing will make it so much easier to have that perfect vacation you want for your family.
Being in the center of the city means always being in the presence of other people – visitors and locals alike, who have the same goals as you, great meals, taking in the architectural splendor and everything else that Barcelona has to offer!
In short, if a city vacation is what you had in mind for your family this year, Barcelona will “deliver the goods”; good food, entertainment, sun and clean city beaches!
