::No Car In Downtown Raleigh? No Problem

By Elliott West, Raleigh Chronicle News Editor
Tuesday, July 3, 2007

RALEIGH - Visitors to downtown Raleigh wishing to get around to see the sights don't necessarily need to drive their car.

Two new forms of transportation have become available this year that rely on old fashioned musclepower -- human-powered pedicabs and horse-powered wagons.

A new company called the Raleigh Rickshaw Company has been hauling folks around this summer using pedicabs in the downtown area, especially near Fayetteville Street, City Market, and the Moore Square areas.

Up to two riders can be hauled around in the green rickshaws with canvas tops, while your driver -- or pedaler in this case -- steers clear of traffic on the streets.

The company says on its website that they give guided tours and will even work at weddings for those who want to ride off from the church in something a little different.

Prices vary, depending upon how far you want to ride.

Another option for downtown visitors is to take a leisurely ride on a horse and carriage. The rides are available most busy nights out on the town and on weekends near Fayetteville Street or near the NC Museum of History.  Two carriages drawn by either horses or mules are sometimes available near the intersection of Hargett and Fayetteville Streets.

The horse-drawn carriages hearken back to a simpler times when many people rode into town in Raleigh on horseback. 

Bringing back some of that tradition to visitors, carriage drivers will be glad to impart some of Raleigh's history to passengers, pointing out landmarks along the way of your tour around the historic downtown loop. ::
