Although for many people the success or failure of a family holiday depends on the budget that is planned to invest (always with the misconception that a larger budget is always a guarantee), the truth is that -leaving aside savings- all family trip can turn into a positive experience if these three starting points are followed:
- Choosing a suitable destination for the time of year when we travel.
- Studying the tourist destination in depth paying especial attention to the advantages and disadvantages.
- Planning things that can be done as a family (since traveling with children requires special extras that only parents know).
Taking these three practical tips as a guide and taking into account that in July is not as hot as in August, it is not surprising that many people choose Madrid as holiday destination in July.
Madrid is not the summer holiday destination par excellence for Spaniards living in the peninsula as the closest beach is 5 hours by car (in Valencia). Therefore, the capital is perfect to live an enjoyable Family Experience. Of all the hotels in Madrid you have to choose from, the Petit Palace hotels are the best option for this holiday adventure.
Plans for the whole family. One goal: have fun
- Parque Warner Madrid
Considered as the safest theme park in Spain, Parque Warner is an ideal choice to give a touch of color and fun to your family trip. Located in San Martin de la Vega (about 22 kilometers away from the city center), this park is equipped with five themed areas and almost fifty rides for young and old. Its tower is the most amazing ride. It is the highest free fall in the world (so far).
- Parque de Atracciones de Madrid
The popular and fabulous Parque de Atracciones de Madrid is located close to Casa de Campo, another option for the youngest members of the family as it is a play area well equipped to offer entertainment and fun for the family.
- Ideal museums for children
One of the things that most clearly stands out to everyone who visits Madrid is the cultural offer of this city, especially designed for children. Within this wide range of museums, we can visit Casa del Ratoncito Pérez, Museo de los Bomberos or Museo de Ciencias Naturales.
