Madrid in the Summer: travel with children
Even if it is hard to believe, there is a corner of the planet where activities for children never end and the plans are almost as endless as your own imagination. It is called Madrid, and it is one of the best destinations for this Summer.
You may have the first thought that a place without the ocean is not very attractive, but I must say that the Word “Summer” means a lot more tan beach. What we look for these months is to enjoy and disconnect ourselves, if possible in a quiet place. So nothing better that seizing the opportunity of coming to Madrid to discover the capital when the Madrilenians escape to enjoy their vacations.
Let’s take a look at different alternatives so that, independently of the ages of the children or of your preferences, everyone finds a good plan.
Feel the rush of adrenalin through your body
If you enjoy looking at danger up close, you will love the following options. Both in Parque de Atracciones, in Casa de Campo, and in Parque Warner you will enjoy a day of thrills. And if you want to spend a quiet day, family attractions are thought precisely for that.
An extra to keep in mind is that this type of park usually has a show where the little ones’ favorite cartoons come to life and fill everything with music and color. Children love them.
And don’t worry about the heat; these months you can enjoy a multitude of water attractions, where you will end up completely soaked. So everyone get wet! If you literally want to soak all day, nothing better than Aquopolis water park, full of endless slides and special areas for the younger ones to have fully safe fun.
For Indiana Jones adventure lovers, the best option is Aventura Amazonia park. You will show off your best skills while crossing hanging bridges through the trees and moving at top speed on zip lines.
Nothing better than a paintball battle to release those family tensions that might arise during a vacation. Fill your children with colored shots, in the end you will be as good as new.
If your children are fireproof, we have an idea for you. In Urban Planet Jump they will burn all their energy, I assure you. Jumping from trampoline to trampoline, pirouetting, flying sky high. They will end up exhausted.
And there is also an option for engine and speed lovers. Nothing like a while in Karting and dreaming about being Fernando Alonso at more than 200 km/h at the wheel of your Formula 1. Dreaming is free, right?
Disconnection in nature
People tend to believe, mistakenly, that Madrid is not the ideal place to enjoy nature. The truth is that not only is the city full of green spaces that will make you forget that you are in a great capital, but just a step away is the mountain, where lakes mix with beech trees and waterfalls.
If you don’t feel like leaving the city, Parque del Retiro or Casa de Campo may become your favorite corners. Having a picnic in the shade or renting a boat are some of the many options that you will find in these spaces.
On the other hand, in the mountain you cannot only find hiking trails for every level, but, for the more daring, there are options for trails on horse that will allow you to discover a truly charming landscape. There are also tourist trains, where you can cover the mountain more comfortably.
Few places in the world have a cultural offer at the level of the capital. Madrid not only hosts some of the most important museums of the international panorama, but its streets are also filled with music and activities like Summer cinema, making it difficult to choose what to do.
In Parque del Retiro, besides the picnic, you may enjoy the puppets of Teatro de Títeres. Cinemas and theaters are everywhere, enjoy them! And if you like museums, Museo del Prado has programs for children, where they will learn while having fun.
Concerts and festivals are everywhere, and many of them are specifically thought as a family plan, so the kings of the house can enjoy them too.
Another option: during next month, children can play pretend in Peque World Xanadu and learn how to drive, how to be barbers, how to plant and collect in the field, etc. A space full of activities where the little ones can discover a new world.
For you sport lovers there are also many plans. On one side, Madrid has made great effort in turning the city into a space where moving in a bicycle is safe and you can go everywhere. On the other, parks again become the ideal corners where you can play and perform sports activities.
But is there anything better in Summer than a pool, to swim and relax? The capital has many different options. And there are also natural sceneries outside the capital where you can bate in nature, like playa de Alberche. Options for every taste.
And if your children are soccer football fans, you can always take a tour of the Bernabeu or if they prefer Atletico de Madrid you can visit the Wanda Metropolitano.
As you can see, Madrid is filled with opportunities to have fun whatever your preferences may be. There are always a thousand plans prepared to make you have a fun time. It is definitely one of the best destinations of the Summer.
