Cutting edge lofts in re-purposed spaces; historic homes renovated for a 21st century lifestyle; lovingly preserved work or home sites; newly built sites that harmonize with their historic neighborhoods. These are the types of spaces we visit on the Inside Downtown Tour. What started 8 years ago as a focus on places within the Inner Loop has expanded to any urban environment where people are creating exciting spaces to live and work.
Your ticket admits you to all these places, plus gives special discounts at businesses in the area. Advance prices are $17 for Landmark members, $22 for non-members. If tickets are available the days of the tour, they will be $25 for all. The tour is self-guided, with hosts at each location.
