Just visiting? A newcomer? A town resident? Join us at the Chapel Hill/Orange County Welcome Center for a tour, “Walk with a Local”….

a downtown walking tour of Chapel Hill’s past, present & future, filled with our singular places, people, history, myths & lore, traditions and impact. This tour is designed to introduce you – or reacquaint you! – to our beloved and storied town and campus.

Tours are free and begin at the Welcome Center downtown (308 W Franklin St) and end on campus, very near East Franklin Street, the historic heart of town (0.6 m from Welcome Center). The tour typically lasts 60 – 90 minutes.

Please go to the registration page to sign up. A limit of 10 participants per tour insures the best experience.

“Walk with a Local” tours by our new crew of Hometown Ambassadors is our focus & energy for tours this spring and summer.

Hope you can join us!
