Historical Burlington City
If you are looking for a little more history on a walking food tour, then you don’t want to miss Burlington City. Our tour stop includes the Armed Forces Heritage Museum, which highlights the history of the military in New Jersey and the neighboring regions. The Armed Forces Heritage Museum is located at the James Lawrence House. James Lawrence was a Naval War Hero from the War of 1812 and “Don’t Give Up the Ship!” battle cry fame. Also, visit the James Fenimore Cooper House (birthplace of author of “The Last of the Mohicans”). Listen to the stories and see artifacts and furnishings at both locations.
Learn about some of Burlington City’s interesting history during our walking food tour. Sip your way through the flavor and aroma of our coffee tasting with education at Evermore Coffee Roasters. Dig into a delicious slider at the Union House. Enjoy devouring a southern classic chicken dish from Taste of Soul. Next up is our stop at Francesco Ristorante with seafood ravioli as our food selection. A little retail shopping is also included on this tour. End your visit in Burlington City with a sweet stop for unique homemade cookies or ice cream.
