  • Virginia Food Tours

    by Casey | Posted on March 21st, 2013

    Does your love of food lead you to new destinations? Several Virginia cities offer food tours that highlight the best flavors and most memorable dining experiences to be had.

    Arcadia

    Arcadia

    Real Richmond Food Tours are two and a half hours of culinary goodness. Hear from the chefs and owners as you dine and walk the town. Inquire about Lincoln Legs: Brunch & Brushes with History. It’s their latest tour that includes brunch at Arcadia (where Daniel Day-Lewis was photographed dining in full make-up for LINCOLN), as well as a tour of historic sites and filming locations.

    DC Metro Food Tours integrate history with great tastes from restaurants, markets and distilleries. Inquire for a wide range of tour locations, including Manassas, Old Town Alexandria and Leesburg. Tickets are $60 or less per person and tours last three to three and a half hours.

    Norfolk’s maritime history is incorporated into three days of food exploration. Visit a battleship, enjoy a homemade ice cream cone from the people who invented the ice cream cone, check out a bakery highlighted by Food Network and adored by Paula Deen … the list goes on and on. The “tour” is simply a list of suggestions to sample on your own, so do as much or as little as you like.

    Experiential Food Tour in Alexandria

    Have a group of friends who would love to spend the weekend touring history and food? Maybe the Experiential Food Tour in Alexandria is up your alley. Site include George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Distillery, a waterfront dining experience, a chocolate appreciation class and more. Customize it however you like.
