Gastro-Tourism is much more than just eating great food at local restaurants.
What Is A Gastro-Tourist Site?
An individual place that provides guests with unique, memorable experiences that highlight kitchen cultures and local or regional foods or beverages. Hosts or Proprietors create friendly, authentic, hands-on activities.
What's a 6+ Gastro-tourist Destination?
Places that brand and market 6 or more sites that promise extraordinary gastronomic experiences, all within a one hour travel radius, are gastro-tourism destinations that have the best potential of attracting tourists drawn to the pursuit of food and beverage-related activities and experiences.
Sites that link together to market their gastronomic adventures have a better chance of attracting overnight tourists to their town, city, village or neighborhood. 6+ gastro-tourist sites spur economic development.
