Updated Downtown Walking Tour Published

The popular, self-guided Downtown Durham Walking Tour has been updated and republished. DCVB produces and distributes an average of 40,000 copies each year via bi-weekly deliveries to 150+ locations in Durham.

The print version is off the press Friday. Linked above and behind the cover image is an online version. DCVB created this piece nearly 20 years ago now but it has steadily progressed. This year it includes a list of restaurants and night spots.

The tour is actually a series of tours with a primary spine and then various options. But Downtown is compact and it doesn’t take as long as you think. This little piece has been under-credited for its role in drawing attention and traffic to Downtown over the years, long before the current revitalization had reached critical mass.

I appreciate all of the time and effort it takes to update this piece. If resources were available, we could easily use twice this many.
