Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Part of central North Carolina’s “Research Triangle,” Durham stays vibrant thanks to the two major universities that influence much of the city’s modern culture and economy. But this is more than a college town — Durham’s role in the early civil rights movement, along with its roots in the tobacco industry, are reflected throughout the city’s museums, parks, and sports teams.

The American Tobacco Historic, a former tobacco factory complex converted into restaurants and event venues, helps anchor the city’s revitalized downtown area, along with the Durham Performing Arts Center and Durham Bulls Athletic Park for baseball. Only a few blocks away, the dining spots and boutique shops in the repurposed tobacco warehouses of Brightleaf Square are a go-to destination for both locals and tourists. Other downtown highlights are the Museum of Durham History — where you can learn about the Hayti neighborhood and other examples of African American prosperity in Durham — and the Carolina Theatre, which hosts concerts and film festivals throughout the year. The area around the campus of Duke University, a couple miles west of downtown, includes the Nasher Museum of Art and the gorgeous Sarah P. Duke Gardens, a 55-acre park with walking paths weaving throughout manicured lawns, pristine flower beds, wooded areas, and a large koi pond.

If you’re looking for outdoor excursions and activities, you’ll have plenty of options around Durham. Eno River State Park features hiking trails, campgrounds, and opportunities for fishing and canoeing. West Point on the Eno is a riverside park with trails and an amphitheater, as well as a historical center with well-preserved structures like an 1800s mill and farm house now open to the public. Running more than 20 miles along an abandoned railroad track through the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, the American Tobacco Trail provides a paved trail open to walkers, cyclists, rollerbladers, and wheelchair users. The Museum of Life and Science, with interactive exhibits both inside and outside, attracts curious visitors of all ages.

Transportation

Transportation in Durham is available via the city’s public transit system GoDurham, which provides bus routes with stops throughout the city. GoDurham offers free service for seniors along with ACCESS, a paratransit program for accessible, door-to-door transportation. GoTriangle is the public transportation service for the Research Triangle region encompassing Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Cary. Operated by Amtrak, the Carolinean is a commuter train running between Charlotte and New York with a stop in downtown Durham.
