When you’re exploring a new city, sometimes, one of the best ways to get around and really take it all in is on a walking tour!
Turns out though, there are tons of walking tours available for adults but not many for kids. Why is that? In this post, we list some places that have created interactive tours with younger people in mind. Because kids like to get their adventurin’ on just like everyone else!
Spooky Tour (Louisiana)
Louisiana is no stranger to vampires, ghosts, and voodoo too. Adults are able to find all sorts of tours in the area on the matter. But this is one of the only places offering kid-friendly tours, ideal for ages 5-10. It wasn’t created to spook them out of sleeping at night- only to question the known. They will get to hear about some of the exciting folklore in the region while simultaneously learning fun facts about the past and entertaining anecdotes.
Creole Kids Tour (Louisiana)
Take kids back to a much different time: The Golden Era of New Orleans, when things were divided by boys and girls, and free and enslaved. It’s an eye-opener, but it isn’t all a downer. There’s plenty of trivia, and fun to be had. The adults are said to learn a few things along the way also.
Seattle Kid’s Tour (Washington)
Since there are not many kids tours available in the United States, one group of Seattle moms set out to change that, by creating “Seattle by Foot“, a 2-hour interactive walk. It shows families all different kinds of Seattle architecture, including water fountains, public art displays, skyscrapers, and playgrounds.
Find Heaven in Hell’s Kitchen (New York)
One of the best places to eat sweet treats in New York City is right in in the middle of Hell’s Kitchen. Admittedly, the name is kind of off-putting. But, that’s okay. The more people that hang back means more dessert for the rest who show up. Join this Sugar Tooth tour group, who meet up in Times Square and venture through Hell’s Kitchen together, stopping for sweet desserts along the way. Learn about the town’s not-so-sweet past, all while munching on chocolate, cookies, fudge, custards and more.
