Most popular areas in Nice for family-friendly hotels

The seafront French Riviera resort city of Nice is sprinkled with hotels suited to family getaways. The palm-lined Promenade des Anglais, a wide boulevard fringed by a pebbled beach, which stretches from the airport to Nice’s old town, is speckled with family-friendly hotels. Stay beside the airport for total travel convenience. If you want full immersion in Nice’s local atmosphere, stay in the modern metropolitan central Jean-Medecin area, inland from the beach. The hilly Riquier neighborhood, meanwhile, offers a quiet residential atmosphere.

Where to find the best restaurants in Nice

Nice’s old town – the Vieille Ville neighborhood – offers an abundance of traditional Nicois bars, bistros, and restaurants, serving quick and easy shared plates of socca – a chickpea flatbread – and pissaladierre, an onion-topped pizza-dish. When exploring the old town area with the kids, these relaxed restaurants are ideal for stress-free meals to satisfy hungry tummies. Along the Boulevard Jean Jaures, you’ll find international restaurants, while the Jean-Medecin area provides familiar family-friendly restaurants.

The most popular things to do in Nice

Nice boasts plenty of play areas and attractions oriented around family excursions. If you’re traveling with tiny tots, take them for a stroll along the bright green lawns – loomed over by shady palm trees – of the Promenade du Paillon. This landscaped green corridor contains fun shooting water spouts and a nautical-themed playground. Take the kids to Parc Phoenix outside the center, a small but abundant botanical garden and zoo boasting a vast pyramid-shaped greenhouse containing giant birds, tropical plants, and turtles. Slightly older kids interested in history and heritage will love the 19th-century Museum of Natural History, which contains enormous dinosaur skeletons, life-like animal models, and collections of shimmering crystals. After, head to the main uncrowded and well-developed beach, where you’ll find it’s easy to keep an eye on the kids.

Best ways to get around Nice

It’s perfectly safe and easy to get around the whole city of Nice with the kids in tow. A public tram line glides throughout many of Nice’s central areas. This is complemented by a public bus network, with routes winding through the center, surrounding towns and suburbs, and to the main airport. Taxicabs are in abundance, too, and make for a hassle-free means of family mobility. You’ll find that much of central Nice is walkable, and slightly older kids will love Nice’s public bike rental system.
