Travel means seeing new sights, meeting new people, exploring new attractions, and (my favorite!) trying new foods! For many, the idea of tickling their taste buds in a new destination is worth planning a trip.  If your travel tribe is inspired by the smells and seasonings of the journey, here are the 5 best foodie tours in the U.S.

‘Burgh Bits and Bites

As a homegrown Yinzer, I consider myself a connoisseur of Pittsburgh provisions.  I was raised on cabbage rolls, perogies, and haluski!  But I really didn’t understand Pittsburgh’s rich culinary history until I went on a ‘Burgh Bits & Bites food tour.

Burgh Bits & Bites is a fabulous way to experience a fabulous city!  There are several walking tours through historic neighborhoods that highlight how Pittsburghers connect through food.  Eastern European, Mediterranean, Italian, Asian, and so many more rich heritages are spotlighted on these tasting adventures.

Pittsburgh is a unique blend of tradition and trend – and you’ll sample both as you snack your way through the city!

Nashville Food Tours

Oh my gosh… just writing the name “Nashville” makes me salivate like one of Pavlov’s dogs.  I mean, I can literally taste the chicken while I type!  Nashville is one of those places where you just know you’ll gain 5 pounds before you leave, and Nashville Food Tours has an array of options for your appetite!

Walk the historic streets of Nashville while sampling artisan foods from neighborhood shops.  Dig into Nashville’s unique history while digging into some delectable treats.

What’s really great about Nashville Food Tours, however, is the customizable foodie adventure.  They’ll plan a progressive dinner party, photo safari, or any other culinary caper you can dream up.  Think bourbon, barbeque, wineries, or even private cooking classes! Yum!!

Lafayette food tour


Cajun Food Tours

New Orleans seems to get all the credit for a Creole good time.  However, Lafayette is the real deal when it comes to authentic Cajun cuisine.  The Cajun Food Tours let you sample all the spicy goodness of the Acadian region.

Your adventures will take you deep into the heart of Cajun Country to sample local favorites like boudin, etouffee, and crawfish.  A stop in charming, centuries-old Breaux Bridge is a must for crawdaddies since it IS the Crawfish Capital of the World!

If you’re in for a full day of exploring, jump on a guided tour of historic Vermillion Village.  You’ll relax on a swamp tour of stunning Lake Martin, savor a serving of gumbo, and wrap it up with the most delectable bread pudding you’ve ever tasted!
