I don’t think you realize how many opportunities there are for foodies in South Florida. I find something new every day — new events, tastings, restaurants, etc. Never a dull moment, that’s for sure. I’ve definitely had my share of experiences here in Boca and Delray, but it’s very rare that I’m able to venture off to other south Florida locations to visit their local scene. So if I get the chance to do so, there’s no way I’m saying no.

The South Beach tour offers both a lunch and dinner tour. It’s a 2 1/2 hour walking tour through South Beach with 7 or 8 stops along the way. Not only did we get to taste some amazing food, but Grace taught us a lot about the history of the area — the architectural design of the buildings, the people who made Miami so famous, the culinary history behind the restaurants, etc. She knows so much about the area and made it all very interesting. We were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day too, although it was a little cold for my liking. I was wrapped up in a scarf and jacket, but the sun was shining all day. About 15 of us took the lunch tour. There were people from different parts of south Florida, but the majority were out-of-towners here on vacation.
