Be a Culinary Tourist on a West Palm Beach Food Tour
What’s a West Palm Beach food tour? Glad you asked.
Imagine a walking tour of beautiful Downtown West Palm Beach complete with history, architecture and culture. Now add 12 generous tastings of the best local dishes, and you’ve got a food tour.
Food tours are not about fine-dining; they’re about tasting fresh, local foods. Those foods may come from a gourmet restaurant, but they may also come from the local Greenmarket, an ethnic eatery or a food truck.
If you were visiting Chicago, you’d probably make it a point to try their Deep Dish Pizza. If you were vacationing in Philadelphia, finding the best Cheesesteak may be on your to-do list. This is culinary tourism, and a food tour is your chance to eat, explore and experience a city, one delicious bite at a time.

“Food connects a traveler to a place in a way that’s arguably closer and more engaging than anything else they could encounter. Confining a food tourist’s dining experience to the walls of a restaurant isn’t enough to make them feel like they got what they came for.” –Dan Peltier, Skift Report
