50 States Series: Best Food Tours Worth Traveling For

Every region you visit has its own distinct cuisine and flavors. I’m sure you’ve heard about the exotic locales like the delicious Italian food or the spicy fare from India. What about those of us based in the United States that want to test out the native food and drink of a neighbor state? Instead of taking your chances at a traditional restaurant that you look up on your phone (like on, say, TripAdvisor) you can receive a much better, and well-rounded view of the area by embarking on a food tour.

We compiled a list of the top food tour in each state worth traveling for. You’ll be able to eat the unique dishes, and partake of some of the craftiest brews around (among many other treats) by signing up for one of these food tours on your next stateside jaunt. Since we’ve done the leg work for you, all you have to do is show up hungry.
