Lingering too long at a single restaurant results in legs falling asleep, food going cold, and the maitre d' building a nest from patrons' belongings. Dodge stagnant dining with this Groupon.
$36 for a Three-Hour Capitola Culinary Walking Tour (Up to $75 Value)
The walking tour traces the cultural and architectural history—as well as culinary offerings—of Capitola, a seaside village. Walkers meander 2.3 miles over pristine rolling hills, armed with hungry stomachs and travel-friendly bibs, while making stops into the Bloomsbury Tea Room, Gayle’s Bakery and Rosticceria, Paradise Beach Grille, and Shadowbrook Restaurant. Tour groups range in size from 2 to 14 and depart on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Culinary expeditions depart in rain, shine, or spaghetti-and-meatball deluges.
Though Santa Cruz Food Tour sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Santa Cruz Food Tour
Local guides call upon their passions for both history and culinary scenes to share their wisdom during their afternoon walking tours. The Santa Cruz food tour eschews the more touristy spots along the boardwalk and wharf. Between tastings, the guides walk through the most historic neighborhoods in town. They also happily arrange tours that accommodate vegetarian diets.
