Zoo Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

The Zoo Barcelona is a fun, low-maintenance day outing for families staying in Barcelona. Home to about 7,000 animals, the zoo offers live dolphin shows, a petting zoo and children's workshops. Located in Parc Ciutadella, this is a large but somewhat old-fashioned facility. Visitors should pay attention to show times and dolphin-feeding times, since they are relatively infrequent. Activities for children and families include Adventure Saturdays and The Secrets of the Zoo, where kids can get up close and interact with animals, which is even better than just walking through the site and looking. The Recreation Area also provides a series of educational computer games for children, designed according to age. As an oasis in the center of the bustling city, the Zoo Barcelona is a good alternative attraction for vacationing families.

Tips for Families
For families with multiple children or younger tots, renting a golf cart is a good idea. The zoo is fairly extensive and it’s easy for kids – and adults – to get tired.
