Looking for something to do on the weekends? If you are in or near the St. Croix Valley we recommend going on Hudson Food Walk guided tours. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom for the We’ve Tried It followers special pricing.
Local family Brian and Katie Elwood started the Hudson Food Walk – a three-hour guided tour where guests learn about the town’s rich history and sample a variety of dishes at five popular eateries.
“We have lived in Hudson for 17 years and can honestly say this town just keeps getting better,” said Katie Elwood. “The thriving food scene, eclectic shops, abundant cultural attractions, scenic St. Croix River and distinctive energy make downtown Hudson a destination enjoyed by visitors and locals alike.”
Meeting with five popular local restaurants – San Pedro Cafe’, Barker’s Bar & Grill, Pier 500, Winzer Stube and Knoke’s Chocolates and Nuts each was enthusiastic about being a part of the tour. From authentic German food to Caribbean-inspired cuisine, the combination of restaurants ensures that guests enjoy a wide variety of food selections. And with the tour concluding at Knoke’s, guests end on a sweet note as they sample a truffle, toffee, caramel and ice cream of their choosing.
“Each of the guides grew up in Hudson and will share some Hudson history along with some of their favorite stories,” said Brian Elwood.
With a strong desire to give back to the community, the Hudson Food Walk will be donating a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold to the United Way’s John Coughlin Food & Resource Center which distributes food to 13 area pantries and shelters in St. Croix and Pierce County, Wisconsin.
