They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, which we can’t disagree with. But we also think the way to best be acquainted with your city is through your stomach.
Whether you just moved to Boston or are relocating to a new area, you’ll find that the dining options are endless. From gourmet cuisine to hole-in-the-wall cafes, you’ll never go hungry in Boston.
But the question is, where do you start? How do you choose just one restaurant from the dozens of options?
Well, Boston Foodie Tours solves the problem with their interactive food tours We can’t think of a better way to get to know your neighborhood than sampling a variety of eats from the venues in your area, can you?
