Thanksgiving may be about getting together with loved ones and practicing gratitude, but for food lovers, this holiday is all about the feasting. Leftover sandwiches aside, though, Thanksgiving is just one meal, and there’s still a long weekend to celebrate. If you want to extend the festive feel, follow up your mashed potatoes and gravy with one of these 10 inspired food tours. From the bustle of Manhattan’s Lower East Side to the buzz of Los Angeles, you can look forward to discovering delicious bites, soaking up local history, and enjoying one more way to indulge.

1. Indulge in Creole and Cajun classics

The Big Easy is the perfect destination for big appetites, and this French Quarter food tour offers an accessible—and indulgent—introduction to many of New Orleans’ most-loved dishes. Come ready to sample classics from sugar-dusted beignets to gumbo (and to really laissez les bon temps rouler, opt for classic cocktails to go with).

4. Explore Seattle’s Pike Place Market with a chef

Pike Place Market—open since 1907, and home to dozens of different vendors and artisan purveyors—is one of Seattle’s most in-demand food destinations. This tour gives you the special chance to explore the landmark in the company of a local chef, who will guide you straight to the tastiest bites (and share insider stories about Seattle’s food scene as you go).

5. Discover the Lower East Side’s cultural (and culinary) mix

Manhattan’s Lower East Side has long been a place where people from different cultures mingle and share space—and that means it’s also long been one of New York’s best neighborhoods for eating. On this walking tour, you’ll learn more about its immigrant history, all while wending your way between dumplings in Chinatown, fresh mozzarella in Little Italy, and traditional Jewish deli bites.

7. Try Philadelphia’s best-known specialties

Philadelphia is home to one of the largest Thanksgiving Day parades in the country—which is probably no coincidence, because the City of Brotherly Love takes its food seriously. You’ll need a breather between finishing off your pumpkin pie and embarking on this food tour, where you’ll taste Philly classics from cheesesteaks and soft pretzels to tomato pie (and even dessert at the historic Reading Terminal Market).
