101. Start a Walking or Biking Tour
Use your knowledge of your community or city to earn cash from tourists looking for expert guides. Whether you start your own walking tour or join an organization that facilitates these tours, you can turn your home turf advantage into a mutually beneficial, calorie-burning cultural exchange.
If you’re starting your own walking tour business, make sure you understand your city’s business and safety laws. Whether you’re visiting famous spots or local hideaways, you need to know which areas are publicly accessible, so that you don’t accidentally trespass.
You could also get a job with a local business that offers guided tours. Depending on the organization, you might be able to share your knowledge with school kids on class trips or other groups on private tour events, in addition to tourists.
