Paris in december with an 11 yr old...?

Jump to last reply

I want to take my 11 year old son to Europe for the first time this December and spend a week ending New Years Day in Paris. My husband is not convinced it is a good idea-mostly because of the weather. I went as a child and loved it, but I am not a boy. I loved the shops and markets and dressing up for dinner. My son is a bit of a foodie and generally loves a good museum (if it is not epic). He is also very active.

Is this a good idea or should I wait until the weather is warmer... any itinerary ideas? I know about the "must sees," but any off the beaten path ideas would be most welcome.

Thanks,
