It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting for the weekend or planning a special event with friends; our itineraries are designed to make you feel more like travelers discovering a new city than Segway-riding tourists being herded like cattle. We focus on local, community-driven restaurants whose food isn’t only delicious; but also reflects the city’s dynamic culture. Combine good eats with discovering cool facts about the city’s evolving music scene and ever-changing architecture, and you’ve got yourself quite a perfect day.
