Some of the best seafood in America can be found in Boston. Just think of lobster rolls, chowder (or chowda, if you’re from Boston), fish and chips, fresh oysters and clams casino, among others. All these foods originated in New England and have become a part of the American tradition.
Everyone always asks where they can get the best seafood and chowder when they come to Boston. Our Yummy Walks food tours in Boston take you to the Seaport District where you will enjoy dramatic views of Boston’s downtown skyline as we stroll along the HarborWalk. The HarborWalk is designed to connect the water’s edge and city’s open space system in a working industrial port. The seafood is local and fresh.
What to Expect
Your tour guide will greet you under the brick arch adjacent to the Boston Harbor Hotel and you will walk along the waterfront and explore the Seaport District, stopping along the way to sample some of Boston’s freshest seafood and chowders. The seafood tour will conclude with a sweet treat within sight of your starting point and close to public transportation.
