Europe vacation: Finding family fun in Paris

Posted on: Leave a comment

Over Bastille Day in July, my wife and I took our girls – then ages 6 and 8 — on a 10-day Europe vacation to Paris. We chose to stay in the 17th arrondissement because it was comfortable and near the food markets on Rue Cler. We found the kids had many more entertainment and play options than expected. We had great times at Champ du Mars, Tuileries, L’Orangerie, and Luxembourg gardens. Here are some photos of our Europe vacation with the kids.

The kids were surprised when they watched a car drive in to the Seine and become a boat! House boats are in the background. One boat has its own car.
