Tours of local attractions take place on a regular basis but you can organize your own
tour with just your kids or with a few other families in your neighborhood. You may be
surprised by what companies and organizations will provide free tours of their facilities.
The fire hall is always intriguing to young children. If you call your local fire hall and
speak with the fire chief he will be happy to arrange a time for you to stop in with your

prepared for the tour to be cut short if an emergency is called in. Free Tours around your City
