Take pizza to the next level in Brooklyn, New York
Make sure to pack your taste buds the next time you visit the Big Apple. New Yorkers take their pizza seriously. So seriously in fact, that the city features some of the most renowned pizza tours in the world. After you take in the sights and sounds of Manhattan, stop off in Brooklyn to enjoy one (or more) of the borough’s popular pizza expeditions.
Why eat at just one pizza place, when you could sample five? These tours will take you through Brooklyn’s most famous pizza spots and even let you skip the lines. The fun doesn’t stop at the food though, many of these tours will take you to the famous Coney Island and Brighton Beach as you explore well-known Brooklyn movie locations.
Run from the paparazzi in Los Angeles, California
If you’ve ever wanted to be a celebrity for a day, Los Angeles is the place for you. Los Angeles’ Off ‘N Running Tours takes runners and fitness walkers on guided tours through the many celebrity hangout spots and eclectic shops of Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Whether you choose the four-mile Running from the Paparazzi Tour or the Marvelous Mansions Tour – which includes a stop at the magnificent Graystone Mansion – be sure to don your sunglasses and running shoes, just in case a relentless group of paparazzi is determined to get your picture.
See the buried city in Seattle, Washington
For those looking for an exciting and unparalleled underground tour, Seattle, Washington, is the place to go. Seattle was rebuilt on top of itself following a large fire in 1889. As a result, there is an entire city buried beneath its busy streets. Touring the underbelly of the Emerald City will give you a history lesson into the city’s storied past, as you meander the subterranean sidewalks and storefronts. Just be careful while you’re down there – New Orleans isn’t the only haunted city on our list.
