Fun activity!

This was so fun! Even as a Burlington resident, I learned a ton that I never would have known. We did it as a group and had such a great time. It was a nice walk around, the right balance of stops and food and history and conversation.

    The highlight of our weekend in Vermont
    Whether you're a history buff or a foodie or neither, this tour is a wonderful introduction to Burlington. There's something memorable about stories that are conveyed well, and Carolyn's introduction to the town is enthusiastic and informative. The selection of places for tastings were varied and interesting. We particularly enjoyed the cream sandwich, momos and the sweet potato salad. If I were to take this tour again, I have a feeling that I'd discover more than what I did over my last visit. What a great idea, what a well designed tour. Thank you.

    Eating You Way Through Burlington
    In every city I visit, I like to take these kinds of tours. Informative, historical, and often take you to restaurants that you wound't necessarily go to. They are always wonderful, and this one was no exception. Hunter was our tour guide, and we were her first solo run. She did a great job! Any questions that we had that she didn't know the answers to she wrote down and followed up with an email to us a few days later. Our group was small, just 3 of us, so it was nice to talk and linger at places that we liked more than others. You meet at the water front and talk about the local Native Americans and their influence. Industry is next and immigration. The tour goes in sequence of historical evens as you walk around the city. The food stops coincide with what you are talking about and I appreciate that. We had a salad of sweet potatoes, cranberries, and wild rice. A lovely little shortbread cookie at a coffee shop. Spicy cucumber and chicken at an Asian restaurant. Off to Penny Cluse for Pork Pie Quebec Style (an odd dish that is delisih, but doesn't sound like it would be) and to Hotel Vermont for perch and beer. I feel like I'm forgetting one...but you get the gist. Be ready to walk. It is about 2 miles around the city, with stops along the way. Got a feel for the city and its culture- one bite at a time. Highly recommend.
