The perfect way to unleash your inner knight, this popular downtown sword-play school offers thrilling classes and workshops for kids and adults, showing you how to wield everything from rapiers to longswords. If you're traveling with your children, see if there's a Knight Camp on the schedule; the five-day favorite is great fun and sells out every time it runs.

Adults can also tap their hidden Game of Thrones persona via classes in everything from archery to mounted combat (on a farm outside the city).
