WHAT TO EXPECT
One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings – Our guided Historic Downtown Food & Cultural walking tour visits seven food tasting locations within the colorful and booming downtown Historic District. Delicious samplings, enough for a hearty lunch for most, are served from locally owned eateries and legendary historic locations. Stops include one of the top historic hotels in the U.S., Roanoke’s most recent Lebanese food enterprise, our internationally acclaimed 24/7 “Tavern”, our most “locally sourced” downtown resturant, a lesson in smoothies, and more. All food & beverage tastings are included in the ticket price.
Historic & Cultural Experience – During and between tastings, you’ll enjoy a glimpse into “The Magic City’s” untamed & wide open early days and how this impacted our local food scene and culture. You’ll learn how our local food scene is repeating historical patterns. And you’ll witness our city’s latest boom. Our enthusiastic, local guides share their knowledge and recommendations of architectural gems, local lore, legend, exciting local attractions and restaurants.
