Some flavorful foods are very state-specific if you didn’t already know. What you find in one state, you might not find in another, which makes the idea of using this printable even more fun. If you love trying new foods and aren’t afraid to taste things that you’ve never tried before, you can have a lot of fun visiting different restaurants and trying the fresh, flavorful meals they provide.

Of course, we love the South Carolina version of shrimp and grits since my parents are from there. These foods are full of flavor and absolutely unforgettable, making them worth a visit to the places that offer them!

How to Use the Printable When Traveling

Laminate this printable or put it in a binder with any other printables you’re bringing with you, such as the one featuring different things to do in all 50 states. Once you have it, make sure everyone takes a good look at it and chooses at least one or two of the foods they’d like to try while on the adventure. You want to get everyone involved in choosing a food to make it more exciting and fair for all.

How do I choose from all these food options?

Choosing which foods you’d like to try while you’re visiting different states may seem like a challenge. The good news is that you’ll have plenty of time to think about what you’d like to taste while you’re on the road. You can also look up videos of these different foods to see how they’re commonly made and what goes into them, which can also help you decide on which foods to try.

Which foods are the absolute best to try with family? 

You can try any of these delicious foods with your family. It all depends on your preferences and the preferences of those traveling with you, such as your partner and children. If you’re looking for recommendations, I’d say try the Ice Cream Potato in Idaho, Cheesesteak in Pennsylvania, and the Gooey Butter Cake in Missouri. Think about what you’re in the mood to eat, whether you’d like something savory and comforting or something sweet to enjoy as a treat.

Which restaurants are worth visiting for some of these delicious meals?

While you’re traveling throughout the 50 states, you’ll come across hundreds of restaurants serving all kinds of flavorful food. If you’re not sure if a restaurant is worth visiting, consider checking the reviews for it online to see what others are saying. The best way to ensure you’re having the best experience and enjoying delicious food made with love is to visit a top-rated restaurant with plenty of reviews containing feedback from others who’ve visited these hot spots. As a tourist, you can also ask some of the locals for suggestions based on the places they like to visit to grab a bite to eat.
