i have 3 children 22, 18 and 16: Would be firat time in Cascai.Is there enough night life to keep the two older ones happy? If they´re happy so will I be!
I would imagine there is quite enough; it's very definitely a seaside resort town (and very nice it is too). There are plenty of bars, pubs and clubs.
Perhaps more importantly, there is a regular and cheap 30-minute train ride into Lisbon Cais do Sodre station. And the same train takes just 10 mins or so to Estoril.
Or, if that doesn't work, on www.cpt.pt under 'urbanos lisboa'. Last train from Lisbon is at 0130, which should be late enough....if not, the first one is at 0530. :-)
Cascais has a farily good bar scene and a couple of small clubs where the young crowd gather and i would think they would be happy there.
Alternatively the "Barrio Alto" region in Lisbon is where it´s rocking and rolling every night.
Yes, there is a large variety according to my experience and Lisbon is really not far away with good train-connections !
Cascais is a lovely seaside resort with plenty of activities therein the entire family can enjoy
There are parks, all sorts of sports esp. on the many beaches dotted all round, a couple of small museums, good nightlife and many pubs; Cascais also has sizable weekly market and places producing local crafts
Estoril the town next over on the way to Lisbon which can be reached also easily on foot by the seaside promenade has a bustling casino where one could find other activities as electronic game room and lots of places to eat out at
