Answers

Montego Bay is a popular site for beach trips for families, couples and singles alike. You will be able to partake of swimming and various water-sport activities. Some locations also have special attractions for children; including bumper cars, jungle gyms, swings, etc. and may include day care facilities which facilitate games and other activities.
You may also want to visit some the crafts market so you can pick up some lovely trinket souvenirs.
Montego Bay has on the Hip Strip a go cart area and other swings and slides that they can go on but for children there is not much to do unless you go to Negril for there is Cool Runnings Water park for children and adults alike. They may enjoy Outameni Heritage play but if they are toddlers not much is there. It is not advisable to go somewhere else and leave your kids at the go cart area. Other than going to the beach that is it, sorry! Montego Bay is really geared to young adults and adults not toddlers. If you are going to FDR a hotel they may enjoy that hotel which is safe and many activities may be there, to engage them and nannies to stay with them, while you go on a tour.
What age are your kids?
its fine do fun stuff but why do stuff you can do at home. i suggest taking the kids to introduce them to things like tropical rain forrest, nature parks, animal farm, bird sanctary where they can learn about the flora and fauna and animals endemic to Jamaica. This would be educating and fun packed. website
Montego Bay has a lot of activities to offer for a day trip, for you and for your kids.

First you need to decide if you would like water based activities or land based activities.

Aquatic:
1. There are several beaches with which you may go. Doctors Cave, Aquasol Theme Park are the preferred options
2. Calico Underwater & Sea Tours - here the kids can see the coral reefs of Montego Bay
3. Rafting - (There are several options here also)

Land
1. Aqual Sol Theme park - Go Karts, Skating rink, kiddies play area
2. Johns Hall Tour
3. White Witch Rose Hall Tour
4. Coral Cliff Kiddies Gaming
5. Animal Farm - Lethe
and much much more....

If you need any help just let us know.
Regards.
Montego Bay is a lovely family vacation destination. I was about to list the series of places I'd recommend for your adult enjoyment instead I've given you a link below to a page you where you can see the popular places to go to while there. As for your children beaches like Aqua sol is a good place to have fun. They have some go carts there, they can enjoy glass boat rides and of course sun and water. Coral Cliff gaming lounge downstairs (game arcade) is another place you can take them to. I am not sure of so the places for children but I'm sure there is plenty to do there while you're in Jamaica. Negril isn't far perhaps taking a trip to Cool Runnings waterpark

FDR resort is an excellent place for family fun yes.
Well if you thinking about your pocket and your kids are interested in games then the coral cliff gaming lounge is perfect for them, they have really cool games that are very easy on your pocket and your kids can win tickets to play other games(making it much cheaper for you), then you have the public beaches with the burger king very near by.. and for you my dear, you can take them along and tour the city, there will be plenty to take back home for them to remember their trip.. the HIP STRIP is where u pay a tourist price(an arm and a leg) for things that you could get cheaper, but if its something very unique, then i think it would be worth it.. then there is pier one.. if you wanna have some time for youself in the night, then TRUST ME, that is the place TO BE..mix and mingle my friend...that is the key..

Visting Montego Bay for a single day is not much of an experience, but there are still several entertaining things there to do. You could check out the Montego Bay Hip Strip, places such as Coral Cliff, Magarita Ville should offer some entertainment to your liking. Also you an check out the duty free shops also
oh i forgot about your kids, they could also enjoy some benefits of magarita ville during the day, but only for the day. After 6 they gotta go, i'm sorry. they can also check out Aquasol, its not like what it use to be, but i guess they'll survive that
If your kids are older than 6 years old you could visit the Great River - River Tubing.
You can also go on a Tour of the Rose Hall Great House
Take a 30 min drive to Braco and do Horse Back Riding.

Visit the local Craft village.
The beach is also essential and you have a choice here.
Hey, I,m not sure if that daytrip already pass, but I just got back from Montego Bay - wonderfull place. I stayed there for a mopnth - became almost local. So my suggestion is - fro the whole famili - visit the Mistic Mountain. That is a gerat fun for half day - lift upon the wild forest and magnificant sea viwe; followed by bobsleid and 5 stop zip line!!!!!!!!! The guys there are great you'll have fun! Also there si a craft shop and restaurant so you could have your lunch here also. The other half of the day just go to Margarita ville - it is very close - that's bar with swimming pool water slope and fine drinks, nice shop to take away gifts! Have a great time!!!!
It seems there is Mistic Mountain, Go Carts and Horseback riding and other activities for the children and adults alike! You can also do historical tours with me and I can take you other places that may exhaust your kids! You can take them to FDR Hotel and you can leave them with nannies and activities are all ready for them!

It s been well said that Montego Bay has great beaches and activities for kids, I reccomend Bluebeat by Margueritaville especially their jazz night, Doctor cave beach, Tortuga, Marine park underwater Tours,and of course a couple of water sports by the resorts
Enjoy
Cheers!
For a day trip in Montego Bay, do a tour of Rose Hall Estate or do some river rafting. You may also check out one of the many tours offered by Chukka Blue Adventure Tours, or just relax and have fun on the hipstrip of Montego Bay.
For more information email; email
I suggest a trip to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary followed by a river rafting trip on the Martha Brae and cap it off with a boat trip to Glistening Waters.

Check out website for details
I forgot to mention Aquasol waterpark in Mobay. This should be a must do for you and the kids.
