Blackpool has a place in my heart. I
was a frequent visitor as a child and
I still take every advantage I can to
return. This city is a haven for kids
with its long beaches, donkey rides,
large funfair and tons of other activities.
The Blackpool Tower is the center of attention
along with Pleasure Beach. A walk along the 6-mile
long promenade yields everything from palm-reading
to slot machine arcades, from cockles & mussels to
The large beaches cater constantly to the
constant visitors with deckchairs for rent and
donkey rides for the kids.
The famous Blackpool Illuminations are held in
September each year. The whole city is lit up
and a city organized car ride through the lights
is the format for a lovely day out.
