We take students on a food and history tour of the downtown area using a local food tour company. This walking tour visits up to 6 different restaurants where students sample local food and meets the chefs (ie. lots of interaction), while also learning history of the city. It's a great way for them to learn about the community and what kind of cuisines are available to them. If you don't have a local food tour company, you could always set up a mini tour of your own!
