One of the best ways to explore the world is through eating. Anyone who likes to try new food enjoys having new experiences when they visit somewhere they've never been to before. Some people put a lot more emphasis on their culinary experiences than others. They might even label themselves as "foodies". Foodies often choose their vacation destinations based on where they can eat well. They want to spend their time munching their way through a new city. There are many wonderful places to go for excellent food, from Japan to South Africa. Even though America has a reputation for unhealthy food, the country has a lot to offer. California, in particular, has lots of great foodie destinations.
