From buffalo trail to streetcar suburb, Carytown’s fascinating story is the focus of this tour as you explore this “mile of style”. Includes Cary Court Shopping Center, restored to its 1930’s art deco splendor, and an “inside look” at the Byrd Theatre (1928), one of the few active movie palaces in the country. New this year we will meet at Nachos Mama’s, 3449 W. Cary Street and end at Dixie Donuts!
