Downtown Cary Walking Food Tour

Get acquainted with Cary's rich heritage while experiencing the flavors of the diverse downtown culinary landscape on this guided walking food tour.

Journey with a small group through the heart of Cary's downtown (often overlooked by Triangle residents), and you will quickly gain a sense of the history and culture that shaped this community. The tour allows you to casually experience first-hand the ambiance and flavor of several unique, hidden culinary gems along the way. All in all, expect an interesting, informative and fun afternoon that will leave you planning a return visit with friends and family. . .

We'll visit 5-6 different local establishments*, including...

  • A casual cafe created in this once historical downtown home...
  • A fun journey to the past at the area's original soda fountain...
  • An incredible gem of a bistro brought to life by a motorcycle riding NYC chef...
  • A place where authentic Cuban cuisine is just one of reasons why Triangle Cubans may call this home...and much more..
