Craving Adventure?

Remember how we looked forward to those rare days during the school year, the days when we left behind daily routines to go on a field trip? Oh, the anticipation, the excitement of climbing aboard the bus to head off on an adventure.

Why should kids have all the fun? Adults need field trips too.

Here’s your chance.


Food writers Jennifer Mastroianni and Saimi Bergmann have designed culinary bus tours called Foodie Field Trips. They’ve done the research and legwork for you, visiting destinations to ferret out the tastiest spots and best-kept secrets. They’ve talked to shop owners and chefs to find local treasures and culinary specialties. They’ve arranged behind the scenes tours and visits with local food experts.

So break out of your routine and climb aboard the bus. We’re going on a field trip!
