Naperville Food and Culture Walking Tour
Get a taste for what life is like for Chicago locals during this 3-hour off-the-beaten path food tour of the Windy City suburb of Naperville. Skip the tourist spots and eat like a true Chicagoan as you try 6 family-run restaurants in this charming city just outside downtown. As you chow down you’ll discover hidden outdoor art and learn fun facts about this historic Chicago area. A guide and all food tastings are included.
What to Expect
See a different side of Chicago during this 3-hour deep dive into the thriving food scene of Naperville, a city just outside of downtown. If you’re looking for an opportunity to experience great food and see the “real” Chicago away from the tourist hubs, this is a perfect choice.

Start your trip at the meeting location shared by the trip organizer in the late morning. Don’t worry about driving or dealing with cars if you don’t want to: the tour starts within walking distance of the Naperville commuter train station. Make sure you’ve got an empty stomach, as you’re about to begin your exploration of this Chicago suburb’s unique food scene and fascinating history.

Travel to six different eateries and food-themed businesses, learning fun anecdotes and trivia along the way. Visit the one-time drinking stop of football legend John Madden, learn more about the “Snugg,” discover the health benefits of chocolate and find out who first made the “Davenport,” plus much more. It’s the great way to expand your mind, and your stomach, all in one great trip.
