Take A Food Tour
A few years ago Joe and I took a walking food tour with Taste Carolina Food Tours. A tour guide walked us around the city sharing unique historical facts about buildings and local sites. Along the way we stopped into several local restaurants for a sampling of their best fare or drinks. It was a fun way to learn more about Raleigh and try some of the local flavor.
