Taste Magazine’s Food & History Tour of Bradenton
Taste Dining and Travel magazine introduces Walking and Food & HistoryTours in two neighborhoods of Bradenton that tell the story of how a river town met the challenges of growth for more than 100 years. Each 2-3 hour tour includes two to three food interludes and finishes with a dessert course.
Bradenton became known as the “Friendly City” during the era of the automobile. Your guide, Georgia Brown, tells the stories of the community as it built bridges and grew into a city. Tourists brought prosperity, baseball, the 1920s boom of classic buildings, the Riverwalk and neighborhoods of houses and family bungalows.
Tours explore the history and architecture of Downtown and the live-work Village of the Arts along with food tastings from Arts & Eats, Ortygia, Sugar Cubed, SoMa Creekside, Motorworks Brewing and the London B&B.
There are two tours and every Thursday is the Downtown Tour (1:30 p.m. $55) which starts at the South Florida Museum located at 201 10th Street West, Bradenton and includes Museum admission ($19 value).
Every Tuesday is the Village of the Arts Tour (2:00 p.m. $45) starts at Motorworks Brewery at 1014 9th Street West, Bradenton and includes a brewery tour and beer.
