Fodor's Expert Review Southern Food and Beverage Museum
This 30,000-square-foot museum, which opened in 2014 on the up-and-coming O.C. Haley Boulevard, was designed to educate visitors on the vast amount of knowledge and art that has accrued around two near-obsessions in the South: eating and drinking. Exhibits feature information on fishermen, farmers, and chefs as well as the many cultures that contribute to this region's tradition of cocktails and cuisine. There's a food gift shop and a tasting room with chef demonstrations; call ahead for updates, current exhibitions, and programs.
