France is well-known for its museums, historical monuments and beautiful landscapes, so you could ask : what to do in France with children? will they enjoy the trip? YES they will enjoy their travel in France; here are some attractions for kids in France.

Eating in a french Restaurant with kids

There are many delicious french restaurants, but all of them are not designed for receiving kids (small and cosy restaurants for example…)

The first thing to do is to go early (7.30 PM for example) to the restaurant, because children are less tired and the place is usually empty, so that children will have place to walk around the table and waiters will have time to pay attention for them

Before choosing a restaurant, check :

*

If there is some place for your kids, so that they might play and walk around the table
*

If there is a kid’s menu
*

If there are already kids in the restaurant, because it is usually a good sign
