Get the Lay of the Land
Agritourism is a thing. And there’s no better place to experience it than Orange County. From our many farmers markets to our farm-to-table restaurants to the annual Piedmont Farm Tour, we are dedicated to helping visitors connect with the people and places their food comes from.

Take a (de)Tour
Sure, we have your typical guided tours. But we also have tours of a different kind. Try a two-hour Haunted Hillsborough tour to discover some of the area’s greatest mysteries, enjoy a self-guided walking tour of Chapel Hill and Carrboro’s colorful murals, or take a self-guided tour of one of the largest natural botanical gardens in the Southeast, the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

Feel Like a Kid Again
There’s nothing like stilt walkers and 20-foot-tall puppets to make a grown person feel small—in the best kind of way. Every summer for the past two decades, Paperhand Puppet Intervention has dazzled audiences of all ages with its one-of-a-kind creations in performances that celebrate art, activism, and the human spirit. Runs August – September at the Forest Theatre.
