Thanks to the growth of food-obsessed walking tours, visitors (and locals) can get to know the culinary histories of any number of neighborhoods across the U.S.

Take the Epicurean Excursion in Portland to enjoy some of the best artisanal items that come straight from the heart of Oregon. Snack on handmade Dungeness crab cakes, pressed Cubano sandwiches and wash it down with a glass of Pinor Noir (or Pinot Gris) from the Willamette Valley.

Munch on maduros and empanadas while learning about classic Cuban cuisine on the Little Havana Food and Culture Walking Tour in Miami, where hole-in-the-wall flavor is favored over the glitz of the Miami food scene. And while in the Big Apple, take an off-the-beaten-track food trek on the New York Street Food Walking Tour to savor the unique flavor of the city streets. From bulgogi to souvlaki, this tour highlights the city's street fare that goes far beyond hot dogs and pretzels.

From shrimp remoulade in New Orleans' French Quarter to lamb ribs outside of Austin, we're dishing up 10 delicious foodie walking tours sure to get your stomach grumbling. After all, what better way to get to know a city than to eat your way through it?

Would love to do all of these! Food tours are great fun. They are a wonderful way to start a visit to a new city -- you get to learn about great restaurants to go back to. Madison Food Explorers' Lake to Lake tour in Madison, Wisconsin is one I would add to the list. http://www.madisonfoodexplorers.com There are tours at 10:30, Tuesday thru Saturday.
