Travel Forums Europe A week in Barcelona with my 9 year old daughter in August

I will be traveling to Barcelona for 2 weeks in August with my husband, son and 9 year old daughter. One week my husband and son are going to go to a tennis academy in the area. The second week we will play tourists and see all of the sites. I am trying to figure out something to do with my daughter for the week without my husband and son. I don't want to do all the typical tourist things b/c we will do that as a family the second week. She is a fairly mature 9 year old and a good traveler. Any suggestions?

Hello, wgnathan!

I would suggest you to visit:

  • L'Aquarium de Barcelona
  • Barcelona Zoo
  • Imax Cinema

Stroll along the port area, rent a bike, have a bike tour. There is a tourist bar next to La Rambla (the main street). Over there you can visit free walking tour. It's only about 2 hours and your daughter will surely like it. Moreover it's for free.
