Carytown Food Tour

Please join us for a unique experience as we explore Carytown with a Discover Richmond tour guide. Known as “The Mile of Style,” Carytown is an exciting mix of restaurants, boutiques, and services. On the tour we’ll learn the beginnings of Carytown and how many of the restaurants got their start; visit a collection of well-known and under-the radar restaurants; sample foods and snacks from up to six unique establishments (vegetarians welcome); discover why Richmond’s oldest theater has a pool of crystal-clear water inside, and check out the east coast’s oldest, most important shopping center. It’s going to be a fun afternoon! The duration of the tour is 2.5 – 3 hours and involves .75 easy walking miles rain or shine. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring water. The cost is $50 for TSCOR members and $55 for non-members. Meeting place to be announced. Limited to 15 participants.
