A culinary walking tour acquaints you with the city around you, helping you avoid disaster during future scavenger hunts and upcoming bouts of hunger pains. Today’s Groupon gets you three hours of steps closer: for $22, you get a South Beach walking tour with Miami Food Tours (a $45 value). Tours run on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and typically trek about 1.5 miles between restaurants.
The three-hour tour traverses South Beach on foot to visit four or five extraordinary restaurants and cafes for sampling local favorites. A passionate guide will lead the pack through the Art Deco District and provide insider knowledge on the area's culture, architecture, and tastiest terra cotta designs. When not busy determining how the town tastes by licking the tasty sidewalks, the group will nosh upon Miami nouvelle, Cuban cuisine, gourmet American, authentic Italian, and homemade kosher ice cream. Tours run rain, shine, or ominous ash cloud, so pack a waterproof stomach.
