As downtown Raleigh residents already know, there are several fun options for getting around town. If you're visiting from other Greater Raleigh areas or Wake County, have no fear about parking...just find a spot on a side street and choose from a variety of options to hop on. First up is to try the R-Line to explore all of downtown! The R-Line is, a cool new
eco-friendly approach to downtown transportation. It’s a hybrid electric bus
that connects you to downtown restaurants, entertainment areas, museums and
parking. The best part is that it’s a free service! It runs 7 days a week at various hours each
day. The R-line site offers a great map to give you an idea of where it runs. If you are up for a real tour of the city, why not try a Segway Tour? Offered by Triangle Glides, you are taught how to use the Segway and
then given a guided tour through various parts of town. If you want to try
something a bit old fashioned, hop on a Rickshaw that you’ll see wandering
through the Glenwood South and
Fayetteville street area. They run every evening except Mondays and are a great family friendly option on those warm evenings.
Of course if you’re going out with a group of friends, you
have to try the pedal-powered Trolley Pub. It’s an eco-friendly, pub-crawling
trolley that seats up to 14 people at one time and will either take you from
pub to pub, give you a guided tour of the town or offer you a dinner tour. You purchase
the tickets ahead of time then simply hop on a seat and start pedaling! Depending on the tour you've purchased, the conductor will guide you to your destination pedaling away and laughing the entire time. So the next time you head into downtown Raleigh for some culture and fun, consider one of these options to add to the Greater Raleigh area adventure.
