Gastro Traveling: 5 Foodie Vacations for the Epicurious
Delicious locations and tips to help you plan your next gastro-trip.
5. Boston, Massachusetts
These days I stick to sustainable seafood like oysters and mussels, and don’t condone eating any type of fish (the oceans are way overfished and super toxic nowadays), but if the idea of lobster, mussels, oysters, fried clams, and fish and chips makes your mouth water, then a trip to Boston is order. Boston is one of the best seafood destinations in the US; and like the locals say, “that chowdah is wicked good.”
Despite being known for seafood, vegan foodie scene is growing in Boston.
With a trip to Boston, you’ll also get a crash course in American history. Places like Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall aren’t just historic landmarks; inside, you’ll also find a wide range of high-end and ethnic food vendors. No trip to Boston is complete without visiting Haymarket Square; people come from miles around to shop at the open-air farmers’ market. And while you’re there, you simply must eat at by Chloe and learn what Boston’s fast-growing vegan foodie scene is all about.
Tip: If time is on your side, rent a car and venture to Cape Cod. Wellfleet is known for having the best oysters on the East Coast.
