Unique Raleigh Experience

Are you up for an adventure? Discover downtown on an exciting and unique scavenger hunt through the heart of Raleigh! Come get to know a little bit more about your host city, as you visit some local favorites and discover new places that are uniquely Raleigh! Snap pictures, solve riddles, complete tasks, and wander throughout the downtown area. If you’d like to sit back and relax while learning about our city, we have that too! Enjoy a fun and narrated tour aboard the Historic Raleigh Trolley! The hour long trolley offers an incredible sightseeing journey of some of the most historic and well-known places in Raleigh.

More details about the scavenger hunt will be shared during MSES 2019. Following this Unique Raleigh Experience, attendees will be invited to gather at a downtown Raleigh destination for more networking and socializing.
