Fun Things To Do in Madrid

Sure, Madrid is known as a fun city, but that reputation has more to do with its nightlife than its daytime offerings. So let's fix that! There are tons of fun things to do in Madrid if you know where to go - with or without the rest of the family.

To start with, family fun in Madrid is closer than you think with the Parque de Atracciones. Located in the southwestern part of town next to the zoo, this amusement park has roller coasters (a few of which take you upside down), all-ages rides, children's rides and food stands. Of course, Warner Park Madrid (our sixth choice) is more of an "experience" than the Parque de Atracciones like going to Disneyland is, but the Parque de Atracciones is a more local amusement park experience.

Cheer for Madrid's home soccer team, Real Madrid, at a match played in the Santiago Bernabeú stadium. Otherwise, you can take a tour of the stadium and see where all the magic happens.

The Teleférico is Madrid's urban gondola. It's a fun experience that takes you from Parque del Oeste, ushers you over the treetops of the Casa del Campo on the western edge of the city, and takes you to a hill in the Casa del Campo recreation area. Once there you can hike, picnic, enjoy views of Madrid, and then take the gondola back into the city.

Madrid's most beloved park, the Parque del Retiro is the city's playground. There you can row boats, stop to smell the rose gardens, participate in Sunday drum circles, get lost in tree-shaded paths, hear Spanish guitarists practice their craft, play on the playgrounds, and admire stone statuary.
