Ho Ho Ho! Join us on the Cincinnati Streetcar “Christmas” Food Tour – Saturday Edition
We have added a new holiday tour that is guaranteed to fill you with good cheer, plenty of seasonal food and “memory making” fun! From Thanksgiving to Christmas, it’s Downtown Dazzle time in Cincinnati and what better way to see and taste your way through the city than on a Riverside Food Tour! Remember, we do all the work, so you can have all the fun!
Whether you are looking for a family outing, a couples get-together or a reason to call your favorite friend, this is an excellent opportunity to come downtown, ride the streetcar and enjoy the festive lights and delicious bites of Cincinnati.
Pull out the Christmas sweaters and Santa hats and make plans now! This special tour is only available for 4 weekends, beginning Saturday Nov. 27.
On Saturdays, we gather at 2:45pm in front of Graeter’s on Fountain Square in the heart of downtown Cincinnati for a steaming cup of their rich hot chocolate, followed by a trip inside the beautiful Carew Tower for a quick photo in front of the Christmas tree.
Next we are magically transported to a Scottish Pub for a holiday dish of roasted pork loin, homemade mashed potatoes and cranberry chutney.
We climb aboard the Cincinnati Streetcar to OTR for a unique twist on a flatbread pizza and a Christmas cocktail (or mocktail for the kiddos). We stroll through beautiful Washington Park to take in the holiday festivities and board the streetcar to historic Findlay Market.
At the Market, we will load up on 4 more treats. We’ll enjoy a delicious piece of Christmas Cheddar Cheese, and a chunk of Christmas Fudge, a gingerbread waffle (or plain for the Scrooges) and a bag of homemade caramel popcorn for the road!
*Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time for the Fountain Square ice skating rink and bumper cars at My Fountain Square. A reservation for anytime after 6:30pm would be safe.
