One way to keep your attendees happy is to feed them well. Now you can make eating the purpose of the event. Coastal Food Tours of Virginia is debuting group bookings beginning May 2011.
Visit Norfolk, Virgina Beach CVB, Food Tour Corp. and Virgina Tourism Corp have joined forces to create The Coastal Foods Tours of Virgina program that showcase some of the Hampton Roads region culinary specialties.
Tours include the Grandy Street Food Tour, Norfolk's restaurant row, which is full of chefs and restaurateurs. Old architecture mixes with contemporary skyscrapers and eateries serve a blend of traditional coastal dishes to modern, ethnic and sustainable cuisine.
Another tour, the Historic Ghent Food Tour, offers a walk through four centuries of history, complete with cosmopolitan city center, picturesque neighborhoods and a force of culinary scenes.
Virgina Beach also has food tours to choose from, like the Farmers Market Food Tour and the Boardwalk Food Tour.
