Do you like to try food the locals eat? If so, you will love the Foodie Tour Kennebunkport, Maine. Sample lobster, clam chowder, ice cream, whoopie pies, and so much more.
What is my favorite thing to do on any vacation?
I love to take a walking Foodie Tour in every city we visit. I was so excited to find out that both Portland and Kennebunkport, Maine had foodie tours. I had to check both of the tours out on our trip to Maine. After all, who does not love to sample food. Before going to Maine, I booked these tours online at Maine Foodie Tours. While in Maine, I wanted to make sure we had a chance to sample food, learn some history, and find out where the locals eat. We were able to do all of this while taking our Maine Foodie Tours. I totally enjoyed our Portland Foodie Tour and our Kennebunkport Foodie Tour. If you have not already seen my video and review about our Portland Foodie Tour, you can do so here. This review is about our Foodie Tour in Kennebunkport, Maine.
What is a Foodie Tour?
A Foodie Tour is a great opportunity to learn about the local food in an area while sampling food at each place you visit. They are normally 2 to 2 1/2 hour walking food tours. Foodie tours cover about 7 to 9 restaurants or food places. The best part is that you get a small sample of food from each restaurant. Do not worry about the walking part. You are not walking 2 1/2 hours straight. You are constantly stopping at restaurants and eating. You may have to walk a mile or two depending on the city you are in. Don’t let the distance scare you because even my special needs son Caleb did not have any trouble with it because of the many breaks you get. You can find foodie tours in most large cities and popular tourist destinations. Be sure to check out the food tours in some of my favorite places: Portland, Maine, Kennebunkport, Maine, Nashville, Tennessee, New Orleans, LA, and Seattle, Washington. I did not know food tours existed until a couple of years ago, or I would have a huge list of places to recommend. Since learning about food tours, the first thing I do before visiting an area is see if a foodie tour is available. It is a great way to combine our love for travel with our love of food.
What we sampled on our Foodie Tour in Kennebunkport, Maine?
This tour takes a leisurely half mile walk from Dock Square across the bridge into the lower village as you stop and sample Maine food all along the way. The stops on this tour vary but we sampled Claim Chowder, Whoopie Pies, Fresh Lobster, Ice Cream, Homemade Root Beer from a brewery, and more. The food was sample size but since we made so many stops we only needed a taste at each place. The Foodie Tour in Kennebunkport Maine was a great way to not only get an opportunity to taste the delicious food that Maine has to offer, but we learned a lot of history about the food and restaurants.
