Touring through the American West can be a great experience for you and your family. Whether you choose to do your own walking and car tours, or a booked tourist tour on a bus or train, you will surely enjoy your touring experience. Moreover, if you choose to do a food tour, you will find yourself marinated in history, steeped in thousands of years of foods and harvests, and baked in a warm land where various cultures meet, meld, and multiply.
There are many ways for you to enjoy the West. Montana tourism helps you make your own plans. If you want to go it on your own, you can take tours of the major cities throughout Arizona, Texas, California, and Nevada, and go from gambling to skiing, waiting for the stars to come out at night to waiting for the Hollywood stars to walk the red carpet. With the rising prices of gasoline and the likewise rising prices of food, you may want to save this road trip for later.
Many different companies offer different food tours of the American West. For instance, the famous Santa Fe School of Cooking has a Culture and Cuisine Tour that happens every year, and that has been documented as one of the best tours of the Southwest imaginable. In this Culture and Cuisine tour, you will tour through the surrounding areas of New Mexico vacations and explore it for its roots in ancient cooking and agriculture. You will also tour through the best restaurants in Santa Fe, New Mexico and meet, face-to-face, the chefs who are at the forefront of this branch of American cuisine.
The Santa Fe School of Cooking tour includes four nights of lodging as well as meals, except for one night when you have to go to dinner on your own. You will also be provided with the transportation to and from different places. You will also get three culinary classes, which will teach you the history of New Mexico by tracing its culinary roots, the different aspects of cooking with chilies, and a real cooking class at Los Poblanos. You will also be provided with wine at most of your meals. Moreover, you get a walking tour of Santa Fe, which allows you to go downtown and taste real Western cuisine!
If you miss the Santa Fe School of Cooking Culture and Cuisine Tour, you can still hook up with the school and get your dose of cooking and history through its Mountain Adventures. Built for outdoor lovers, this tour is offered in mid-September through a partner of the cooking school. You will stay at a luxury resort during this tour, and you will still get some cooking classes along with your outdoor treks.
Another way to get in touch with the area’s history is through communing with the Native Americans who still live in the area. Colorado tourism allows you to do so through Colorado Plateau Journeys, which offers an exploration of the ancient cultures within the Southwest. You will be able to talk to tribes such as the Hopi; learn about their culture, talk to their elders, cook and taste their cuisine, participate and watch their rituals, and walk away with a greater appreciation of the first true Americans who lived on this land.
