Maritime Tour – East Village Long Beach
Melting Pot Food Tours’ own “Maritime Tour”. Join us for a 2.5-hour walking tour steps from the Pacific Ocean in East Village Long Beach. Take a stroll through alleyways for a viewing of public art, plus meet amazing merchants, experience personal family recipes and so much more.
Landlubbers, we are squeezing in a lot in with this foodie tour. This maritime tour is a splash of history, and a big dash of local culture. Join us for tastings, local flavors, and civic art. Our guides will share stories about this “beatnik” neighborhood, plus The Long Beach Port and The LA Port and so much more. For an extra dose of fun and retro, we’ve included a record store with vinyl and cassettes. For the inner foodie, the tour will taste Thai, Italian, Vegan samplings, local street tacos, and kombucha, and more. Join us!
