There is boundless energy in Barcelona and, as such, boundless things to do in Barcelona too! The city buzzes day and night, especially along the legendary Las Ramblas, a kilometer stretch full of daily events, shopping, landmarks, artists, street vendors, and merchants.

Quiet contemplation is also a cinch, as countless things to do like parks and plazas along the city’s edge make it easy to relax outdoors and escape the urban bustle. Less quiet, though equally alluring, are the myriad beaches where Barcelona’s bronzed and beautiful flock to during the high season to lie about and drink beer the minute they get off work. Now THAT’S a Happy Hour!

And once the sun sets, the grand Barcelona nightlife steps up to the stage, promising late night revelry that can only be cured by one more day lounging on the beach.
