Foodies will love this idea! Hire a tour guide or a driver who knows the ins and outs of the best restaurants in your town or city. If you want to discover the best food tours in your city, you can always head to Tripadvisor and see what other locals recommend!

That way, you can spend your birthday trying out different cuisines and meals; it’s called a progressive dinner. You have an appetizer at one location, then your main meal at another, and dessert at a local spot. One more bit of advice: come hungry!
