The Gold Discovery Walking Food Tour by Local Roots Food Tours is a great way to explore downtown Nevada City. The tour combines a combination of history, walking, architecture and fabulous food. Sample menus from seven different downtown restaurants, each with their own unique flavor. I was fortunate enough to tag along with the tour today and our pit stops included: The National Hotel, Lefty’s Grill, Elevensies Crepes, The Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe, Sopa Thai, Cafe Mekka and the Stonehouse. I love the fact that I got to be a tourist in my hometown, learn some interesting history about the gold rush days and eat some delicious foods. The 3 1/2 hour tours start at $52, a great value for the amount of food you get, click here for their schedule.
