While Mardi Gras may not be the ideal time to shuffle through the streets with children, New Orleans is a great family destination, with rich history, lively culture, incredible food and endless entertainment. Grab a warm beignet, stroll along the Mississippi River to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and ride the St. Charles streetcar to the Audubon Zoo.

Visiting a new city for the first time can be overwhelming. With so much to see, a walking tour can be an effective way to see a city’s landmarks and learn a thing or two. These U.S. cities offer a variety of walking tours, whether you want to see popular attractions or hidden gems.


New Orleans 

Food, ghosts, culture, history — no matter what your interest, New Orleans has a tour for it. Start with Free Tours by Foot, which offers daily tours.



Learn about the City of Brotherly Love’s haunted history on a Grim Philly Tour. Tours are adults-only and some offer stops at local bars. If you’re more interested in cultural landmarks, take a Mural Arts tour and see the city’s extensive mural collection. Self-guided tours are also available.



With so many things to see in Chicago, start with an architecture tour. The Chicago Architecture Center offers an extensive collection of tours including one covering iconic buildings and another examining the city’s train system.


Portland, Oregon

Portland offers tours celebrating its quirky environment. Portland Walking Tours takes visitors to Portland’s lesser-known and bizarre attractions. The city is also a popular destination for beer fans. Book a tour with BeerQuest Walking Tours to sample the city’s best brews.


Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s capital is an ideal spot for history buffs. There are plenty of walking tours highlighting the city’s political significance. If politics isn’t your thing, try a food tour or cherry blossom tour. DC Metro Food Tours and Free Tours by Foot are great options.
