Culinary Walkabouts Offer Mouthwatering & Team-building Delights

California's cities are so rich in culinary treasures, there aren’t enough meals in a day to give visitors a fair taste. Food tours offer a solution, allowing groups to experience a half-dozen or more gastronomic options, while learning about the destination’s history and landmarks.

Population: 475,000 in the city, 2.5 million in greater metropolitan area.
