Live, Work, and Play in Durham

Downtown Durham

Urban living at its finest, Downtown Durham features a host of housing options, plus plenty of big-city amenities. In addition to local staples like the Durham Bulls Stadium and the Durham Performing Arts Center, the downtown district is home to some seemingly hole-in-the-wall places that you could miss if you don't look close enough. But no worries, Downtown Durham's "Walk-A-Bull" landscape outlines all the best places to eat, shop, and visit in the area.  

Superior schools 

Durham students are served by Durham Public Schools, the eighth-largest school district in North Carolina. In addition to its exemplary public school system, the city has a number of specialized schools, including the North Carolina School for Science and Mathematics and Durham School of the Arts. Many graduating seniors go to attend Duke University, North Carolina Central University, or Durham Technical Community College. Home of the Cameron Crazies, Duke is a private research university widely recognized for its contributions to the healthcare field and, of course, its men's basketball program. 

Outdoor adventures  

One of the best ways to discover all that Durham has to offer is by exploring the city's nature trails. Starting just across from the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the 22.6-mile American Tobacco Trail takes you along an abandoned railroad bed. Eno River State Park is any nature lover's paradise, with winding rivers and rolling hills. Here, you can hike along the Eno River and take a moment to rest at the park's historical mill. For a one-of-a-kind experience, you can venture out to Hux Family Farm to do yoga with farm animals!  

Local events  

Like we said, there's always something to do in Durham, which means you can look forward to having a jam-packed social calendar when you live here. Dive head first into Durham's culinary scene at the Bull City Food & Beer Experience, where you can sample dishes from 30 different local restaurants. A true embodiment of Durham's desire to be different, the Beaver Queen Pageant raises money by having contestants dressed in beaver-themed costumes walk the runway. Plus, you can't miss Bull City Rumble—seriously, you can hear the vintage motorcycles and scooters at this rally from miles away.
