A great, warm way to get to know a city is by taking a food tour. I mean, who doesn’t love to eat? These tours provide not only samplings from fine restaurants, but also history and culture of a particular neighborhood. Probably the most well-developed company in DC providing these tours is DC Metro Food Tours (http://dcmetrofoodtours.com/). I took its Capitol Hill tour last winter and was able to learn a lot about the history of buildings in that neighborhood, and I tried foods from around the globe (Indian, Greek, Mexican, etc.). A deterrent for these tours is the cost (tends to range from $50-70+), but check Groupon, LivingSocial, and the other deal sites because they will feature food tours from time to time.
