Fans of food and travel have always found creative ways to enjoy both interests at the same time, including train-top taco fights, horseback horse fries, and space-shuttle-eating contests. Indulge your inner tourist’s appetite with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a guided tour of local culinary hot spots from Virginia Beach Food on Foot Tours (a $20 value).
Offering both visitors and locals guided tours that highlight interesting, off-the-wall eateries, the Food on Foot Tour merges eating with sightseeing to form a casual 2.5- to 3-hour walking excursion. Tourists and residential veterans alike can ingest tasty morsels of truth regarding local entertainment and the Virginia Beach oceanfront while anticipating a wide variety of complimentary bites from establishments that remain a mystery until tour time. Throughout the tour, enough noshable nuggets will be provided to satisfy the hungry screams of stomach varmints, so come hungry. Although guests are not seated at any of the stops, the pace is very casual, allowing the slowest and steadiest of fabled tortoises to keep stride. Restroom stops are also provided along the tour.
Launched this year, Virginia Beach Food on Foot Tours is the first food-tasting and cultural walking-tour company in Virginia Beach. The pioneering journeys take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. or from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., rain, shine, or ominous ash cloud. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
