One of the most fun and delicious ways to get acquainted with a new city is to taste some of its signature dishes. But how do you decide where to go? We at the Grace Manor Inn are always happy to provide suggestions, but now you can also sign up for a Real Richmond Food Tour and taste a bunch of good stuff all in one afternoon.
The two-and-a-half-hour walking tours take you through a certain part of the city, and along the way you stop at restaurants, meet owners and taste culinary goodness. In between munching, you’ll get a taste of Richmond’s architecture, history and current happenings. Sounds like a pretty good deal!
There are two upcoming tour dates. Thursday, December 30, is Shockoe Slip: Capital of Cuisine, and Saturday, January 15 is Shockoe Bottom: Shock and Awe. Tickets cost about $40 and can be purchased online.
You can also purchase gift certificates for Real Richmond Food Tours if you want to treat friends to some Richmond foodie fun.
