Treat your taste buds with a walking food tour of Rehoboth Beach

Treat your taste buds with a walking food tour of Rehoboth Beach

A ‘foodie’ is defined as someone who has an ardent or refined interest in food. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger.

Do you consider yourself a foodie? Do you also love to stroll the streets of Rehoboth Beach? Well, if this combination sounds like you, then you are guaranteed to be a fan of the Walking Food Tour of Rehoboth offered by Eating Rehoboth.

We all know that Rehoboth Beach is a hot spot for top-notch culinary delights with a seemingly endless array of restaurants. With all the various food options, sometimes it’s difficult to decide where to go. Getting a sampling of the area’s cuisine is a great way to amble through the choices to find the one that is right for your next dining experience.

Embark on a 3-hour gastronomic adventure through Rehoboth Beach’s charming streets, where you will enjoy exclusive food and beverage tastings at five of the town’s best eateries. You will also visit specialty food shops and outdoor venues, and get some local history and restaurant lore along the way from a ‘seasoned’ guide (no pun intended). The tour also includes opportunities to interact with chefs, owners, and restaurant staff.

Slip on your sensible shoes and meet at either Hotel Rehoboth or The Bellmore Inn & Spa. Be prepared for about 1.5 miles of leisurely-paced walking. Tastings vary from soup or apps to restaurant specialties, and may be paired with a specialty cocktail, beer or wine. No matter what the sampling, be assured that you will excite your palate. You may find a new favorite food along the way or an interesting twist on an old fave. You can sum it up perfectly by quoting Eating Rehoboth’s tagline – you will “eat, sip, walk, discover.”

Participating restaurants vary, so you could take the tour more than once and sample something different each time. What a magnificent way to get a comprehensive taste of the town!

Tours are held Friday and Sunday from 1-4pm, through November, rain or shine. The cost is $49 per person. Participants must be 21 or older. Visit the Eating Rehoboth website for more information.
