The North Carolina BBQ Society has a BBQ Trail. There are about two dozen members across the state. They call them "historic pits." I don't care what you call 'em I wanna go. Texas also has a BBQ trail centered around San Antonio and Austin. If you like beef brisket (and who doesn't) this should be on the list, too.

Kentucky has a bourbon trail that offers a trail pass. If you get to all nine you get a free t-shirt (and maybe a get out of jail free card). This would also be a good time, but I'm not going to attempt all nine in one day.
There's an Ohio Donut Trail in Butler County. No, I'm not sure why either. They invite "donut connoisseurs to experience Butler County via locally produced donuts—something the county prides itself in." That's fine and all, but I have one of the best doughnut shops two blocks from home so I'll skip the trip to suburban Cincinnati.
There are multiple chocolate trails in the country and why not? Santa Fe, Brooklyn, Indiana, Connecticut, New Hampshire, etc. Heck, Hong Kong has one. I see nothing wrong with checking out one or two of these. New Hampshire's is a wine, cheese and chocolate trail. Their motto is Live Free and Savor. I'm sure their cheeses and chocolates are just fine, not sure about the wines.

Several states have beer trails. It's no surprise that Vermont, Oregon and Colorado are on the list, but even Delaware and Montana are there. Sonoma County's tourism folks have put together a beer trail itinerary for you in case you're in the neighborhood. Sonoma County doesn't really need a marked wine trail as there are 425 wineries in the county at last count. Not sure how many of these have tasting rooms, but there are enough!
