Spring is a fickle time of year. The weather can be unpredictable, making it difficult to plan ahead when considering a trip to our all outdoors paradise. But there’s more to Gaylord than just the great outdoors…
Take a break from your active routine and TASTE what the Alpine Village has to offer by sampling delicacies from our vibrant and growing culinary scene! The best time to try out being a “foodie?” How about our second annual Taste of Gaylord and Restaurant Week, presented by the Gaylord Area Chamber of Commerce?
Kick off your eating adventure on April 16th with Taste of Gaylord at Treetops Resort! Experience an extravaganza for your taste buds for just $35 per person ($40 at the door). With 15 restaurants on site, your menu for the evening ranges from butter cake topped with bourbon sauce to spicy chicken wings to beef tenderloin with garlic and merlot jam and everything in between. What a great way to explore our local cuisine!
If you’re looking for an excuse to keep indulging, Restaurant Week from April 17-24 is the perfect reason to experiment with your taste buds! And with 20 participating restaurants to choose from, you certainly won’t run out of options.
Dining establishments will provide dinner specials for $25 and lunch for $15, with some offering two-for-one pricing and drink specials. The best part? You can make your food selections ahead of time by visiting the Chamber of Commerce website and viewing each restaurant’s special menu!
After a long day of restaurant-hopping, you’ll be ready to catch some well-deserved zzz’s. Whether you’re looking for the resort experience or something smaller and a bit off the beaten path, Gaylord has the perfect place for you to rest with a full stomach. Combine one of our excellent lodging options with restaurant week to create your own “stay & eat” package!
