Kids! They are the future so let’s make sure that they’re having as much fun as possible while they’re kids, right? We’ve all been on the standard guided history tour and let’s just say it can get a little repetitive. With these kid friendly tours, your kid can learn some valuable information about the things they actually like! Let your kid be a kid and explore these options for a fun tour they’ll always remember.
Superhero Tour in New York
Superheroes, every child has a favorite! With the Superhero Tour of New York you and your child can go on a 90-minute walking tour and see where all their favorite superheroes had all their best fights. Visit sites from all of the best blockbuster superhero films—you’ll stop by the Flat Iron Building to see Spiderman’s Daily Bugle Office, see the battleground where the Avengers fought for mankind, and much more. If your kid has any interest in superheroes at all, this tour is perfect to keep their tiny brains amazed!
O’Leary’s Fire Truck Tours in Chicago
There’s a few things in life that most kids love and I’d say Fire Trucks are one of those things! So why not take your Chicago kid on O’Leary’s Fire Truck Tour! It’s a great way to view the city of Chicago and learn about it’s vast history and culture. The best part has to be the ride itself—a unique antique fire truck will take you from city site to landscape as you hear all of the wonderful stories Chicago has to offer!
The Terror Trail and Witch Trial Trail in Boston
Maybe you’re one of those parents who loves to terrorize their kids? How about a tour of the Terror Trail? They’ll hear creepy stories of local ghosts, learn about a haunted ship, and listen to tales of a famous local murder, spooky! Once October roles around, you can also take your Boston kid on the Witch Trial Trail. It’s a walking tour where they’ll explore all the sites and hear the story of the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Is there anything more interesting?
Newseum in Washington, DC
This seven-level building is the perfect place for any kid who has journalism on the mind. Each level of the Newseum is full of interactive activities for you and your kid to participate in. With 15 galleries and 15 theaters, you might actually have trouble pulling your kid away from this tour. Get them in front of the green screen for a weather report or behind the anchor desk and you’ll have a little news reporter in no time!
Universal Studios Hollywood Tour in Los Angeles
I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a filmmaker and I can only imagine how perfect a tour of Universal Studios would have been. Go behind the scenes of one of Hollywood’s biggest studios and see real life film sets. This tour is definitely for the more adventurous kid. Choose one of their favorite films and hold on for an experience they’ll never forget. As you zip through the lot and explore, you and your kid will feel as if you’re in the film itself. Show your child exactly what it takes to become the cinematic master they will one day be!
TCHO Chocolate Factory Tour in San Francisco
Finally, probably my favorite idea for a tour, the TCHO Chocolate Factory Tour! This one-hour tour is free and perfect for any kid with a lack of patience. I can’t really understand why any child would want to rush through what is essentially a Willy Wonka tour but hey, to each their own! You’ll view a short film about chocolate, get to taste test some of the best chocolates, and generally just be surrounded by chocolate as it’s made. Sounds like a dream come true to me!
