Taste the Renaissance of Covington, KY!
On our Madison Avenue food tour, we visit local, family-owned eateries where we taste delicious food featuring global cuisine and “down-home” Kentucky favorites!
Our well-informed local tour guides will help you uncover old and new landmarks and share the exciting renaissance the city is undergoing. Covington, founded in 1815, was the epicenter in Northern Kentucky. After decades of decline, it is now a thriving foodie destination with beautiful architecture!
We begin with a wonderful local dish inside the beautiful Hotel Covington plus we tour this chic boutique hotel. We also enjoy dishes from three other restaurants, visit a craft brewery and end with a sweet dessert.
We visit Mother of God Church from the 1870s. You’ll feel like you’ve walked into a European cathedral! We walk past street murals, statues and even an old firehouse. There’s plenty of history to share on this tour!
Walk down Pike Street, the original turnpike from Lexington to Cincinnati. Next, enjoy an epic taco and an authentic Mexican street dog.. Visit one of the most successful craft breweries in the tri-state history for a beer of your choice. Make sure to save room for dessert.
