Eat like a local around the United States

Do you eat like a local when you travel? One of my favorite ways to travel is to act like I live there. There’s a connection we can make when visiting other areas of the country if we don’t act like a tourist. By eating at places the locals love, we can make those connections, and enjoy our travel experience more.

A few weeks ago I shared with you my favorite breakfast places here in Carmel, Indiana. As I tried a few new places, and enjoyed my favorites again, I kept in mind what someone visiting our growing city would want to see. Where would they be staying, why were they visiting, and who would they be enjoying their meal with.

Well, around the country other bloggers also shared their favorite local places to eat – and not just breakfasts this time! Now when you get ready to travel this year, make sure to check out this list, and see how you can eat like a local. Whether you’re on a family vacation or traveling for business, looking for a meal or a dessert, or a quick bite or a leisurely experience. Who knows, perhaps you’ll find your new favorite travel destination based on the local food.
