Taste History Art & Culture Study Tours visits mural in Lake Worth Beach, Florida by Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra
The mission of the non-profit 501c3Taste History Art & Culture Study Tour is to offer educational, art, history and cultural study tours for students from first grade thru college highlighting multi-cultures, ethnic cuisines, art, architecture in Palm Beach County and the relevant/related historic information. The program is designed to be a curriculum-based live lab, out-of-classroom, on the road experience. The study tour is offered as a field trip of age sensitive amount of time of one day for grades first thru 12 or as a multi-days educational excursion for college students.
“The study tour is a multi-sensory tangible experience designed for students to complement their classroom learning,” says Lori J. Durante who developed the program and is the volunteer tour guide.
The Taste History Culinary Tours were started in year 2011 as growth and expansion of the Narrated Bus Tours of Historic Palm Beach County which were started in year 2004 as a once-a-month trip. Both tours were originated and developed by Lori J. Durante as a 100% volunteer effort. The Narrated Bus Tours of Historic Delray Beach has hosted more than 8,000 tour passengers. In year 2011, an additional tour was added which was named the Taste History Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County. Combining the attendance/passengers of both tours, more than 14,000 people have been hosted on these cultural weekly and monthly tours. The cultural tour programs have evolved and grown through the years. “A new season is being ushered in post-COVID19 pandemic, thereby the tours are adapting and evolving again”, says Lori J. Durante. Year. 2023 marks the launch of the Taste History Art & Culture Study Tour program.
