Florida's Gulf Coast is known for its beaches, culture, and especially its food. In areas like Downtown Dunedin, you're unlikely to find a chain restaurant, though you will find some of the tastiest barbecue around. Sarasota boasts one of the highest concentrations of Zagat-rated restaurants in Florida, and Tampa's Ybor City treats food lovers to a blend of Spanish, Sicilian, Romanian, German, and Cuban options—including a local signature take on the Cuban sandwich.
These are just some of the things you'll learn from Gourmet Trek's guides, a team of culinary enthusiasts, cultural experts, and comedians who take groups to some of Florida's tastiest restaurants. Aside from visiting food, their walking excursions also come with sides of cultural history, like how Dunedin was once a haven for wild pigs in its early years, though no one is certain whether they also wore sunglasses.
