President Rebecca Pfeiffer explained the inspiration behind Taste Twin Cities Food Tours, and how she decided to base a tour in the Mill District:
"Being an avid traveler and food lover, it was suggested to me to participate in a food walking tour while on my last vacation. It was a fabulous experience to try food at local eateries that I would have never thought to try, while at the same time meeting other foodies and learning about the history and culture of that city. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to bring this experience to the Twin Cities for our local residents and visitors; to get to know our rich food scene and unique neighborhoods.
Our first tour is called the Minneapolis Riverwalk Tour. This tour was created to enjoy vibrant historical neighborhoods, amazing views of the Mississippi River all while eating food and enjoying drinks that are proudly Minnesota made or owned."
Each tour is limited to 12 guests, beginning at Gold Medal Park and ending in Northeast Minneapolis (Hennepin Avenue & SE University Avenue). With six tasting stops along the way, think of it as a very leisurely lunch (11:30am - 2:30pm). To learn more, visit their website and Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
If you love to eat, try new foods and enjoy a fun experience learning about the history of the Twin Cities, this tour if for you! Reservations are required, and at $43 per person it's an entertainment bargain. We look forward to adding this tour to our 2011 Must Do List!
