Transportation Options:

The Hillsborough Street District is long and linear! If you're ready to get your steps in, we encourage walking between Beryl Road and Morgan Street to visit as many merchants as possible & see all the great performers.

If you're not quite ready for the 3-mile walk, street parking is available throughout the footprint. Some merchants may also have private lots available while you are at their location only.

The GoRaleigh Bus System is a great option if you want to forgo the worries about parking! Check out the map of stops and schedule of pickups here.

And if you want to feel the wind in your hair, we've got Electric Scooter (Spin | Lime | Gotcha) readily available! Just make sure to abide by all rules for riding.

If you are a Hillsborough Street District restaurant or bar and you want to participate, please contact Katrina Gomez at
