Most people know Martin Luther King, Jr, preached at a church in Atlanta, but odds are they don’t know what his favorite meal was, or how his parents came to be a couple, or how his arrest and release near Atlanta helped to shape a presidency.

Well, those are all things you’ll find out during a food tour in the city.

That’s right. A food tour.

That beats sitting in a history classroom any day, right?

The Downtown Southern Food Walk offers more than a taste of some great Southern cooking. Along with the soul food, barbecue, and Lowcountry cuisine, you’ll be treated to a side of history.

You’ll get to see where the Civil Rights Movement really started, taste the same recipe that was used for MLK’s favorite food, and hear stories about some of the neighborhoods and cultures that even those who live in Atlanta don’t know.

You’ll make stops all along the way, tasting some of the best food Atlanta has to offer, then walk off a little more so your belly can make room for the next bite to eat.

It’s a great way to find out more about MLK and the places around Atlanta that helped change history forever.  You’ll also be treated to a peek at some of Atlanta’s famous movie spots and street art.
