Trip Ideas You Can Steal From a 10-Year-Old’s Visit to France

Trip Plan for Kids

Special friends are on the way to visit, including my dear 10-year-old McKenna. Creating a trip plan for kids with 7 days of activities has been part of the excitement. 

McKenna and I have always had a closer-than-usual relationship because we share the same birthday date. We both agree that makes us “twins” of sorts. We’ve spent the day together almost every birthday since she was born. Her mother and I are friends from IBM. This past birthday, McKenna wanted her theme to be “Paris” in preparation for her upcoming visit to France.

Here’s the 7-day itinerary.

You’re welcome to steal!

My guests are arriving at the end of this week, and we’ll be taking off for an active tour of southwest France.

Day one: Pick them up at the TGV station in Avignon and walk around the Pope’s Palace.

Day two: Saturday Market in Uzès. Of course, it’s my favorite thing to do! Trek in the Vallee d’LEure and take a swim at the public pool. Dinner is somewhere fabulous in Uzès.

Day three: Pont du Gard tour followed by a visit to Nimes to follow in the footsteps of the early Romans.

Day four:  Morning tour and lunch in the walled city of Aigue Morte. An afternoon “Safari” tour of the Camargue, starting from Grau de Roi. Drive to Sete and spend the night at my favorite Airbnb apartment.

Day five: Breakfast at the city market in Sete, followed by an afternoon at a beach club in Sete on the Meditterean.  Catch an early evening train to Carcassone in time to check in at our Airbnb “converted bar” lodging. View the Bastille Day fireworks display in Carcassone and 40,000 other tourists.

Day six: Guided tour of Carcassone and shopping (along with thousands of other tourists.) Catch the late afternoon train back to Sete. Drive two hours to Uzes.

Day seven: Say goodbye and scurry to Nimes for an early morning flight.

Collapse. Sleep. Repeat.

(Yes, there will be posts and pictures of it all. Stay tuned!)
