Every city needs Sites and Bites
Not sure why more cities don’t have businesses like this. The tour started at a con isn’t location next to the mission inn. We received a little history on the location and we were off to our first food stop. We had a nice small size portion and chatted a bit with a great fun group. We had a few more stops and between the walking to each stop and the portion size it was the perfect amount. The highlight was the mixology class at the Lobby and how great it was to learn about the city I’ve lived in but haven’t paid attention to the little details. Plus how else would I try 4 different places over a long brunch?

We Loved Our Riverside Sites and Bites Tour
I really enjoyed the whole tour! Some of my favorite parts were learning about the history of Riverside from our very knowledgeable tour guide! I learned so many things I had never heard before! I also enjoyed the delicious food we were able to sample! Another highlight was the mixology class! The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable as well! I would definitely recommend this tour to out of town visitors and residents of Riverside as well!
