The spring season is a welcome relief from the cold. If you’ve been hibernating all winter and are craving the feel of the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, we’ve got just the ticket. Explore your city in a whole new way by taking a food, drink, or city tour! Get outside for some fresh air and exercise with stops along the way that will delight your taste buds.
The say the best way to experience a culture is through the cuisine. It’s certainly the tastiest way! Melting pot that we are here in the U.S., you can find exciting food tours in cities throughout the country that are as varied as the landscape, and spring time is the perfect time to try something new.
What’s a food tour?
Although it might seem too good to be true, a food tour is just what it sounds like: touring several restaurants and eateries and sampling the best of each. Your tour guide will hand pick the best local hot spots and walk you from one to the next. Learn about the history of the area and the cuisine along the way, and end up with a full tummy — and a list of new favorite restaurants!
Some of our tours highlight specific neighborhoods or sections of town, while others hone in on specialty items to delight the connoisseurs (chocolate tour, anyone?). From downtown L.A. to Seattle’s Pike Place Market; New York food carts to ethnic eats in South Philly; you’ll love exploring your city in this unique and delicious way.
Another fun and tasty way to get outside this spring and explore your city is through a drink tour. Whether it’s wine, beer, or cocktails, the varieties of each craft come to life through your tour guide as you stroll from one watering hole to the next.
What’s a drink tour?
Just like a food tour, a drink tour provides an experience that goes far beyond a simple meal or beverage. You’ll learn all about the fascinating histories of some of the nation’s most intriguing cities, as well as the history behind the drink. It’s entertainment, education, and pub crawl all rolled into one!
Sip your way into a deeper appreciation for the arts of brewing and fermentation and raise a glass to your fellow explorers. Drinks are best when shared, and a warm spring day is something to celebrate!
Do you have picky eaters in your family or circle of friends, or young ones who couldn’t join a drink tour? You can also explore the city in fun and different ways through our guided city tours. Why wander aimlessly when you can enlist the help of a friendly and knowledgeable guide?
For that matter, why walk when you can tour Chicago by kayak, D.C. by Segway, or San Francisco by bike? Perfect for the whole family, these memory-making city tours are filled with fun facts and will open your eyes to a whole side of the city you’ve never seen before.
