Learning doesn’t have to be strictly a Monday through Friday thing for kids. It doesn’t even have to be done sitting down. We’ve rounded up the coolest, kid-friendliest walking tours that will keep little ones engaged and tucker them out for bedtime, all while imparting a little historical wisdom.

D.C. By Foot

Big (and small) Hoya fans will appreciate D.C. by Foot’s Historic Georgetown Tour, as guides showcase this neighborhood from a different view. Focused on colonial history, presidential addresses and the University, little ones get the chance to see what it was like to live on a cobblestone street, eat at a tavern (mutton?!) and find out just how long kids had to sit during church in the 1700s (hint: multiple movies could have been watched).

Cost: Free, tips welcomed
