Krista's Travel Tips for Barcelona

What are the best places to eat and drink in Barcelona?

Barcelona is a place with many amazing restaurants but our favorite place to head would be the mercados (markets)! Mercado de la Boqueria is a definite front runner with endless options of delicious food and drinks! Great for a group or family so that everyone can find something they love!

What are the best things to do in Barcelona?

The beaches of Barcelona are beautiful but our favorite would be Platja de la Mar Bella for sure! Be sure to pick an area where you’re the most comfortable as it is a naturalist beach in some parts — it’s very family friendly down by a cute beach bar that rents our umbrellas and chairs called Caribe Bella Mar! We spent almost every afternoon at the beach after mornings filled with museums, landmarks, and other adventures!

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Barcelona?

We have two boys - 5 and 7 years old - who love to explore but also are little kids! The beach was a great way to keep them busy but there is also a great aquarium, many kids parks in the city, and plenty of places to pique their interests! The mercados were a fun way to let them try new foods without being stuck! Barcelona is very family friendly - we would definitely go back!

Montemartre is my absolute favorite neighborhood to get lost in. There are so many beautiful building with greenery and flowers, as well as streets with views of Paris. The food is amazing too! I also love that you can see the Eiffel Tower while walking around the city. I'd be walking along, snap a photo, and notice the Eiffel Tower in the background. It made me smile every time.

Being in Paris for your birthday is so special. We booked lunch at Madame Brasserie on the Eiffel Tower and it was the perfect way to celebrate. The experience was amazing. Otherwise, just being in this magical city is quite enough.

What are the best things to do in Palm Desert?

There are lots of great places to visit in and around Palm Desert that include Joshua Tree National Park, The Living Desert, Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Palm Springs Air Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum and Moorten Botanical Garden. Or if you're looking for a more relaxing experience, you can always lounge around poolside or play a round of golf.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Palm Desert?

There are lots of kid-friendly things to do in Palm Desert and while there there is no bad time to visit, I would avoid the Summer months of July and August at all costs if you've never felt dry Summer heat before or can't bear it! Traveling here during the Fall, Winter and Spring will be much more pleasant.
