When I first started this blog, I was approached by an individual who wanted to help me in whatever way he could. He had mentioned he was trying to start his own company here in Syracuse, which offered distinctive tours in three distinctive locations throughout the city.
Immediately, I thought it was a brilliant plan. How great to get to know Syracuse from someone who is passionate about this place!
As time went on, he included 365 Things Syracuse on his blog, featuring something to do every Tuesday. It was not only great exposure, but it was also a reminder that I was doing the right thing with 365 Things Syracuse. It was and still is, an honor to have a little link on his blog!
He has finally started to put the finishing touches on the tours, and just launched a new website, which is awesome because now I can feature him on this blog before it’s too late! (5 days…people!)
I went on a sort of “mock tour” this summer as part of a test-group and loved every second of it. We went to all the hot spots in Armory Square, we got to taste some AMAZING scallops at BC, delicious irish liqueur shots at Kitty Hoynes and even a sample of Empire Brews…we learned about the history of the buildings and walked the streets of Armory Square learning about the family and relationships the restaurants, bars and stores have created.
Afterwards, I immediately told all of my friends that when these tours launch they HAVE to go on one!
The tours range from $40-85 dollars, and they’re well worth it! You have to sign up
