Sweeten up summer with Sugartooth Tours


    NEW YORK – It doesn’t get any better than exploring the Big Apple on a hot, beautiful summer day.

    Whether you’re from out of town, or a native of the city, Sugartooth Tours Downtown Village to Village Cupcake Crawl and Ice Cream Summer Sundays Frozen Treats Tour are the perfect way to explore the hidden sweet treats of New York this summer.

    Both tours take guests around tasteful and historical parts of the city to experience a wide variety of delicious desserts. On the tour, visitors get the chance to explore the sweeter side of New York through a variety of dessert stops through Manhattan, Union Square, and more.

    “The idea behind our tours is to have our guests really experience more than just the big-named shops,” said Sarah Morgan, co-founder and co-owner of Sugartooth Tours. “We keep our tour sizes small so everyone can really experience and enjoy the city and treats along the way! We also mix in a bit of history at each stop, so our guests know the story behind the sweetness.”

    This year’s Downtown Village Cupcake Crawl ventures through the East Village and West Village into Manhattan, and gives those on the tour the opportunity to not only taste cupcakes at various locations, but also create their own. Part of the excitement of this tour is that each person gets to choose their own cake, frosting, and sprinkled toppings at one of the stops.
    For those looking for something a little cooler on a hot summer day in the city, this year’s Ice Cream Summer Sundays tour is the perfect fix. Featuring stops in Little Italy, Soho, and Chinatown, folks get to experience New York’s best delicious cold treats from uniquely flavored ice creams, ice-cream sandwiches, artisanal gelato, frozen yogurt and more.

    To purchase tickets, the Downtown Village to Village Cupcake Crawl runs Saturdays at 3 p.m. beginning June 4, while the Ice Cream Summer Sundays Frozen Treats Tours run Sundays at 1 p.m. from June 12 through Aug. 28. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online at www.sugartoothtours.com
