Discover Downtown Tours

Explore. Connect. Discover.

Hear the stories, see the spaces and learn about Downtown Raleigh in an immersive, engaging way through the Downtown Raleigh Alliance’s Discover Downtown program! Discover Downtown Tours highlight a variety of downtown locations from sneak peeks of new developments to behind-the-scenes experiences.

Meet others interested in Downtown Raleigh’s history, development and unique culture during and after the tours. Tours are followed by a gathering at a nearby venue for refreshments and conversation. Tours are free and open to the public but fill up quickly. Subscribe to the DRA weekly e-newsletter here for Discover Downtown information.
