Burn (a Surprising Number of) Calories at the World’s Top Attractions

In January everyone seems to be focussed on health and fitness, but because hitting the gym or running the same route every day can get boring, AttractionTix have put together some handy research on the amount of calories you can burn by simply exploring some of the world’s top attractions.

The Louvre - Paris landmark
 

For example, if you take the kids to Disneyland Paris, you’ll probably end up walking around 25,000 steps and burning over 1,000 calories without even realising it. Furthermore, it takes over 11,000 steps to explore the beautiful art filled corridors of the Louvre in Paris, burning nearly 600 calories.
