NC Main Street & Rural Planning Center
The NC Main Street & Rural Planning Center works in regions, counties, cities, towns, downtown districts, and in designated North Carolina Main Street communities, to inspire place making through building asset-based economic development strategies that achieve measurable results such as investment, business growth, and jobs.
NC Main to Main Trail
The NC Main to Main Trail is a unique way to experience North Carolina communities. Since 1980, the State of North Carolina has been selecting cities and towns of all sizes to carry the distinction as designated North Carolina Main Street communities. These communities are actively engaged in the Main Street America™ network and are following the Main Street Approach™ to revitalize their downtown districts.
The NC Main to Main Trail leads you through the state’s designated Main Street communities, highlighting each town’s best downtown and outdoor experiences, and providing links to the local Main Street program, VisitNC and the local tourism websites, so that you don’t miss a thing as you trek the NC Main to Main Trail.
