Family holidays with children in Jordan - attractions and entertainment

If you plan to visit Jordan with family and children, it is always a good idea to plan this vacation beforehand and do not limit yourself to beach recreation. First of all, consider visiting Al-Wadi Water Park that is located on the Dead Sea coast. Small children can swim in a shallow pool and older kids will be excited to try various slides. Adults will be surprised to find a swimming pool with artificial waves and a manmade river. This water park has many advantages, such as two amazing restaurants, each of which has a menu for children.
Jordan offers a broad range of activities that can make any vacation even more exciting and fill the time between sightseeing. Wadi Rum Desert is one …

There is one more popular water park that is located in the outskirts of Amman. This is a two-level modern center with water attractions and slides at the first level. At the second level, there is a big calm swimming pool and several quality restaurants. Aquamarine Center in Aqaba is another great destination for fans of water-based activities. This center specializes in diving. Professional coaches will teach your teenager how to dive and will improve your scuba diving skills.
Marine Science Center in Aqaba is one more interesting destination for tourists. It has large aquariums that simply can leave neither kids nor their parents indifferent. In more than two dozens of aquariums, visitors can see all creatures that live in the Dead Sea. There are mollusks, corals, and fish of all possible colors. There is also a small exhibition dedicated to birds and animals. Visit the amphitheater that is open in the capital. Even kids, who feel bored in many museums, are usually excited to see this grandiose construction. The same applies to the Royal Automobile Museum. An interesting fact – not only boys but also girls are usually amused in this museum and enjoy looking at numerous exhibits. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

In Amman, there is one more museum that absolutely all children like to visit. This venue has a very simple name - the Children's Museum. It is an interesting interactive venue that teaches through gaming for kids under 14. Forget about boring showcase windows with writings near items. In the Children’s Museum, your kid can become an astronaut, a writer, superhero, biologist, scientist, and doctor depending on the playground. Has your child ever dreamt of milking a cow? He/she can do this in this museum. Of course, the cow is virtual. Create a rainbow with your child, hunt for treasures of ancient civilizations, write articles and issue own newspaper. When tired, visitors can always relax in a special café for children.
Jerash is a family-friendly destination in Jordan. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. First of all, it is important to mention the local hippodrome. Almost every day except Tuesday, the venue hosts costume shows dedicated to Roman fighting traditions. Just imagine – beautiful costumes, laurel wreaths, chariots, gladiators… Teenagers and younger kids will be very excited to attend such a show. It feels like you’ve made a time travel and returned to the Roman Empire times. The city of Jerash itself is a very interesting destination and is worth exploring.
Jordan is a marvelous country with a rich heritage that is famous for its unique landmarks. However, these treasures are not the only reason why so …

How about a ride on a flying carpet? Tourists can hardly find similar entertainment anywhere else! We are not tricking anyone. It is a ride on a flying carpet, well, a virtual ride. It is popular entertainment that is available at Aqaba Gateway shopping and entertainment center. Your armchair will be shaking and the whole city will be at your feet. Tourists can also enjoy a less innovative but a no less exciting ride on a camel. Needless to say, children of all ages will be excited to try that. Sailing and off-roader safaris are no less interesting activities that appeal to travelers of all ages.
How about a flight in a hot air balloon above Jordan? Just do not inform your kid about this adventure in advance because he or she will forget about sleeping and eating while waiting for the flight. This activity is organized by the Royal Aero Sports Club in Wadi Rum Desert. To be able to enjoy the flight, you will need to wake up early in the morning because it is usually not windy at this time of the day, and the hot air balloon can fly safely. Tourists also need to remember that it is possible to reach the skies only in spring, at the beginning of summer, and in autumn.
