Delightful guided walking orientation tour of downtown Raleigh, N.C. With so many accolades bestowed upon this lovely city, Raleigh continues to move forward in its six downtown districts (Fayetteville St., Government, Oakwood, Moore Square, Warehouse, and Glenwood). The city’s founding fathers called Raleigh the “City of Oaks” due to mostly hardwood (Oak & Hickory) trees that were present in Colonial times. 

Capture the sites, and stories of the who, what, when, where, and why of this growing foodie Capital City today. Tours last approximately 90 to 105 minutes.
