Urban Art, Food & Libations Tour

will take participants down alleyways, behind corners and thru one-way streets to view and learn about local urban art murals in the Midtown area of Sacramento. Along the way we will be popping in to visit a few of Sacramento’s excellent wine and port tasting rooms to tantalize your palate. Looking for a way to fill your belly on this tour? Our culinary concierge will be guiding the group in and out of local mom and pop eateries and bakeries while taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of this truly hidden gem area. Combine all the ingredients and you have the recipe for a fun-filling and educational experience.

Midtown is known for their arts district but what lies on the exterior walls tells a story at each stop. Participants will learn the details behind how several murals were created and the story behind each setting – a cool way to learn about Sacramento’s art scene. Learn about one local artist’s passion while viewing her art mural, hear the story on how long, what type of paints were used and where she got her vision to draw a mural that took well over 2 months to paint on the tour…..one of the many fun and interesting stories! Tours launch Thursdays & Saturdays at 2:00pm.

What Folks are Saying!

My friends and I absolutely LOVED the Nevada City Local Roots Food Tour! Our guide Eric was superb! His good-nature and pleasant, easy-going manner made the tour so wonderful! He was easy to talk to, easy to ask questions of, and kind and patient and knowledgeable. Our food tour stops were excellent, with a wide array of great foods and beverages, as well as the historical tour parts which was all around us as we walked the lovely streets of historic Nevada City. Best ever parking available, meters were incredibly cheap! Definitely plan on minimum 4 hour tour with shopping time, which could cost you only 50 cents (bring quarters!) for parking! Amazing overall great experience! Thank you for the best day ever! :)
