Most people think of the battlefields when they hear Gettysburg, but that is slowly changing. Gettysburg now has a way to get their tourists to experience some of the fine cuisine that’s always been there. It’s called…
Savor Gettysburg Food Tours
Food tours are getting popular throughout the country, and with good reasons:
- It is hosted by a local representative with their finger on the pulse of the local food scene
- Only the best and most willing establishments are part of the tour – they want you to come and sample their finest.
- Often you’ll discover the off-the-main-drag places that you might not have ever discovered on your own
- You get a chance to sample the best of the best in limited amount of time. You can always make a reservation and come back to your favorites.
- No need for reservations on the food tour – your tables are ready and the food is waiting for you
Savor Gettysburg has been gaining popularity quickly as they take you to eight different stops with ample portions at each. Don’t eat lunch first, you are going to be full when you are done.
You also get a chance to see in many of the historic homes that were here during the Civil War and are still functioning today.
While the schedule may change in the future, we stopped at all the following during our 3-1/2 hour tour:
- El Costeno for great Mexican cuisine
- One Lincoln – a full service restaurant in a hotel
- Hauser Estate Winery – took home a number of their ciders
- Garryowen Irish Pub – voted “Second Best Pub outside Ireland”
- Café St. Almand – lovely little French bistro
- Gettysburg Cupcake Shop – to die for cupcakes and coffee
- Farnsworth House Inn & Tavern – a beautiful B&B with Victorian furnishings
- G’s Homemade Ice Cream – no sharing – you’ll want every last mouthful for yourself
It was a fun, light-hearted few hours. We learned a lot about the city and kept being fed these fantastic delicacies. What’s not to like?
