Sure, there are hiking trails in towns across the United States, but not every city boasts food or booze trails that reward the traipse with sips and bites. Here in the Bay Area, we have a few of our own, from the Tri-Valley Ice Cream Trail to the Concord Beer Trail. But if you’re traveling further afield, here are a few “trails” where you can sate your craving for, say, Ohio donuts, Buffalo wings or New Mexican margaritas.
Fodor’s, the travel guide site, offers up nine trail options, including a pizzeria crawl through Connecticut (yes, of course it includes Mystic Pizza), a bourbon sampler in Kentucky and a tequila-centric saunter through Santa Fe. The latter includes stops at more than 40 margarita bars — pace yourself, people! — including the La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda on the Plaza for a tamarindo margarita or the FLOAT Cafe & Bar at Meow Wolf, where you can sip a butterfly pea flower-tinted Meowgarita.
Here’s just a peek. Find the full list and all the details at www.fodors.com.
