Like A Local’s Taste of Williamsburg: Sunday Funday is just as fab as it sounds: You’ll hit all the hot spots in Williamsburg itself, with tastings galore and plenty of shops, street art, food shops and spectacular city views thrown in for good measure. Famous street art works will be pointed out.
Here’s the scoop: Williamsburg is known as hipster heaven. You can judge for yourself, but you’ll certainly see this nabe through a local’s eyes (Hipster or not? You be the judge). You’ll get some delicious local eats in select tastings. You’ll visit one-of-a-kind boutiques and meet the designers themselves. You’ll tour the Brooklyn waterfront, with its knockout views of the Manhattan skyline. You’ll hear all about the history of the neighborhood (and learn about what’s happening next). And do brewery and winery tours, learning all about the neighborhood's Brewer’s Row, which was the home to more than 45 beer-making facilities at the turn of the century.
All in all, this is a bohemian paradise: food, lore, fun. If you want a first-hand account of Williamsburg, this is the tour.

Did you know?
Though in Brooklyn, Williamsburg is just across the East River from lower Manhattan and is a bustling neighborhood of happening food, indie rock and hipster culture.
Don’t let the hipster vibe put you off: Anyone’s welcome here, and there’s plenty to see. This neighborhood is also home to a wide range of ethnic cultures, from Italian to Dominican.
Brewer’s Row was dubbed the “beer capital of the northeast” in the late 1800s. By 1976, the last brewery had closed its doors. In recent years, the neighborhood and Brooklyn have seen a resurgence of breweries.
