Raleigh Rockin' Walkin' Tour
ABOUT THIS EVENT
***NOTE: This is a sample event from 2017***
Ever wonder what our capital’s buildings are made of? Join us for this walking tour where we will explore different rock types while visiting historic buildings, museums and other hidden nooks in the downtown area. Explore the rocks, minerals and fossils that make up the buildings of downtown Raleigh. We will use hands-on activities and samples to find out how the rocks were made and why they are used for buildings. The tour will run rain or shine except in the case of severe weather. We will meet in front of the N.C. History Museum on the Bicentennial Plaza to begin the tour.
