New Tour Company Shows off Winchester Food and History – A self-professed history buff, Misty Weaver saw that the city of Winchester was lacking a walking historical tour.
“My family will tell you that’s where I drag them every time we travel. And I realize not everyone loves history because of that, but everyone loves food!” said Weaver.
She started her own tour of downtown Winchester, packed full of historical anecdotes and stops at a number of locally owned restaurants. Weaver hopes to show tourists and locals alike what Winchester has to offer.
New Tour Company Offers a Taste of Winchester – From Pad Thai to apple pie, tiny tastes of local cuisine run the gamut in a new history and food tour conceived to promote downtown Winchester.
The tours provided by Taste Winchester History combine samples from downtown restaurants with a narrative conceived by tour founder, Misty Weaver.
Beginning at the south end of Loudoun Street Mall, walkers work their way from restaurant to restaurant. At each, there is a nibble or two to try, and between stops Weaver — or her husband, Anthony Morelli, who also leads groups — offers a narrative quirkier than the typical history tour, she said.
