    You describe tweens perfectly! They’re really in transition so you need to get creative to keep them entertained. This is such a fun post filled with some interesting activities that everyone would enjoy. What tween wouldn’t like chocolate, biking, dead bones, and the gates of Hell! Really enjoyed this post.

      Thanks for stopping by! Each phase of childhood requires a different prep for …well, anything right? LOL! But especially travel. It is fun to see their reactions and get their take on everything. Traveling builds fantastic memories.

    I understand exactly what you mean by terrible two, my daughter is two and terrible! In the future I’ll learn about what a tween is really like! The restaurant in the dark sounds interesting, 3 courses in the dark, wow. I’m sure the tween enjoyed the chocolate museum, who doesn’t love chocolate, my terrible two would go crazy in there!

      LOL! Tweens and toddlers have their similarities for sure. 🙂 But…it is so wonderful to travel with both – it just takes planning! Thankfully, the ‘terrible twos’ only seem to last forever..but they don’t really!

    I travel with a toddler and think once they are out of the toddler age, we don’t need to bother about anything. But your post gave an interesting insight. You do have to consider things when traveling with a tween as well 🙂

    We are just entering the tween years AND we are going to Paris in May, so I will be sure to keep this handy. I don’t need my kids to visit La Musee de Chocolat, but I guess I would be willing to take them ;). Catacombs are always interesting and I could see both my boys are dying to try segways. The dark restaurant sounds very interesting!

  6. It must be so great to travel with your kids. I think Paris, as many other big cities, has activities for everyone, no matter the age. I’m sure they loved to see the Eiffel Tower in person too 🙂

  7. Haha the term tween cracks me up! I love that you shared these tips because a lot of parents out there find excuses not to travel, or not to bring their kids along. It is proof that you can always find ways to make things work out so you both have a good time, regardless if it is a toddler or a tween.

  8. Teens are tough! My boys are all grown up now but I remember those days!!!! Paris has something for everyone and I live toys suggestions. Dinner in the dark sounds sensational and the suprise menu is intriguing!

  9. This is a great post. I grew up in Paris but I always like seeing it from someone else’s perspective. And some of the places you listed reminded me of my own tween years. Some really good ideas here that should make the whole family enjoy the trip.

      Oh, I’d love to hear of any other places you would suggest for a tween? Something unusual and off the beaten path? You are the voice of experience!

  10. When in Paris, it worth considering a 90 minute flight to Prague, a historical gem in the heart of Central Europe.
    If you visit Prague its worth exploring the local historical architecture.
    For me walking through the streets of historical Prague, is like walking through a gallery of all major European architectural styles, spanning a thousand years of architectural history in enchanting colors and shapes and, it is interesting to discover how these splendid buildings shaped the history of the Czech Republic and in contrast, how history shaped the designs of many of these buildings and what they came to symbolize in an historical context.

    In the historical center of Prague you can walk past the Municipal House, the Art Nouveau jewel of Prague, that is covered in floral motives, guilded wroth iron curved around beautifully shaded stain glass.

    And continue through the Gothic and neo-Gothic styled powder tower going to the Celetna street , covered with Baroque palaces with Gothic interiors and Renaissance courts yards. On the way you encounter the unique Cubist house at the Black Madonna with its straight angular lines, then continues on to the medieval Ungelt compound with its Renaissance palace , past the heavily Baroque St, James Church and into the Old town Square with its legendary Astronomical clock. Which is followed by the Art Nouveau Jewish Quarters with its ancient synagogues.

      I have visited Prague and found it to be so very beautiful and interesting but the children have not yet visited. These are great recommendations. The beauty of Europe is that it is so easy to get around. We live in Texas, in the United States, which is quite large. It often takes more than a 90 minute flight just to leave the state!
