Your chance to learn about the character and characters of Philadelphia history are joining up with a bit of exercise.

Historic Philadelphia, Inc., announced the new lineup of spring walking tours at an event in Philadelphia today.

tours are unique because each one is hosted by a History Maker, an actor personifying the character of a real 18th-century person. Each performer goes through extensive training to learn thorough details of the time period and their individual persona.

You can get more information about the tours by visiting historicphiladelphia.org.

The spring lineup of tours launches this week and will run through the winter.
