Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Barrio de Salamanca and Mercado San Miguel. Kids will enjoy Playa del Alberche and Retiro Park (Parque del Retiro). Get out of town with these interesting Madrid side-trips: Segovia (Palacio Real de La Granja de San Ildefonso & Old City) and Toledo (Catedral Primada, El Transito Synagogue and Sephardic Museum, & more). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Museo Nacional del Prado, take a stroll through Gay Madrid & the Chueca District, identify plant and animal life at Faunia, and explore the world behind art at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
