PLAN: GAME PLAN

Master a Food-Driven
Vacation
Your guide for enjoying gastrotravel

What to pack: Bring
firm, lightweight containers
if you're going to take any
tasty souvenirs home in
your suitcase. And if you're
planning to enjoy the area's
finer establishments, call to
check the dress code and
pack appropriately. You
don't want to be turned
away because you're not
dressed properly.
When to plan: Make
your travel arrangements
six to nine months before
your travel date, especially
if you're attending a popular
food festival. If you have your
heart set on any particular
restaurants, see how far
in advance
Caption tk you can make
reservations.

How to budget: With

your food focus, you may
want to cut back in other
areas: If a luxury spa date
leaves you less spending
freedom for culinary
delights, save it for another
trip. Check out mass transit
routes to your sightseeing
spots, and limit your
clothing and accessory
shopping. Just remind
yourself when resisting: You
are here to eat!

New York's Smorgasburg (pictured here) is the largest
weekly open-air food market in America, attracting 20,000 to
30,000 attendees to Brooklyn each weekend. Out West,
raise a glass to many celebrated wineries at stops along the
36-mile route of the Napa Valley Wine Train (right).

World and LocalEats offer
tips to find the best meals in
your area. But keep in mind
that other people might have
different goals and tastes
than you, so get a bunch of
insights before trusting just
one review.

Maximize your time:

Research the restaurants,
food fairs and food
neighborhoods you're
visiting. Then find out which
cultural offerings (museums,
movie houses, architectural
hot spots) are nearby so you
can strategize. And how
about a food tour? Let a pro
give you the scoop.

Best souvenir: Food (of
course!), especially items
that won't spoil if your
bags get delayed. Tinned
fish from seafaring areas,
local liqueurs, artisanal
candies-all of these make
great gifts (and you won't
have to spend time figuring
out whether that green
sweater would look good on
your friend back home). For
international travel, you'll
need to make sure you're
permitted to bring your
treasures back home and
then declare the items, but
the small-time investment
upfront will pay off in
delicious morsels back home.
