Things to do

by p_a_w_a_n_a Online Now Jan 19, 2012 at 5:19 AM

Hello all,

One question, I'm in Madrid for a 2 weeks business visit. Any idea where I can bring my family after I finished my work (between 7pm-10pm)? I stay in Sol area. Any good place to be visited by me and family of 3 kids?

Thanks.

    great are Sol, the center of Madrid, for kids better go to La Casa de Campo, metro batan or take the cable car=teleferico at parque del oeste, there is an aquarius, zoo, and attraction rides park there. the metro will take you quickly.

    the covered palace of xanadu is great too, a commercial center with skating ring,and cinemas, etc

    Then it depends what specifics you want to do with the kids, Madrid has it all
    cheers

    well depend whats reasonable, my favorite is El Corte Ingles stores at several locations including off Sol

    Then you have several smaller stores all over the place. You can try the Alcampo or Carrefour or Hypercor stores google as I am at work

    Hi,

    Some friends of mine were here with three kids last summer (they're from California) and the kids just loved riding the metro all the time!

    This might be fun:

    You can also go to the movies. Near Sol there is a movie theater that shows movies in English.yelmocines.es/cines-madrid/p...

    Also, check out this guide for things to do with kids in English:

    Have fun!
