Downtown Food Tour

Historic and hip, downtown Houston honors the city's rich past while simultaneously embracing the future. Houston's largest business district offers modern skyscrapers, historic facades, world-class athletics, cosmopolitan activities, and a variety of critically acclaimed bars, restaurants, and shops. From historic Main Street and Market Square to Green Street, downtown Houston has something for everyone. 

These three-hour walking food tours will discuss the evolution of the area's history, architecture, and culture while stopping at a number of establishments to enjoy a variety of food and drink. 

Market Square Park/Historic District 

Just blocks from the Buffalo Bayou as well as the neighboring warehouse district, north downtown Houston has a history as long as the city itself. From Market Square Park, the former home on the city's first major public to historic, vibrant Main Street, the area has undergone an exciting revitalization. Turn-of-the century buildings have been painstakingly restored to their former glory and now house a variety of bars, shops, and restaurants. 

The Food tour may include the following: 

Spanish Tapas 
Regional American 
Craft beers 
Locally grown organic produce
