Durham is ever-changing, but never changing.

We already know you’ve heard about Durham’s celebrated food scene, top-notch universities, and startup culture. We know you’re aware that Durham offers respite for the wanderer, outlets for the creative, and inspiration for the adventurer.

We also know you’re wondering why you haven’t been here yet. 

Durham’s been doing this thing for over a century and a half, y’all. We are barbecue and biscuits; locally-sourced small plates and craft cocktails. We’re a gritty tobacco-grown town with international corporations. We’re activists, scholars, artists, and entrepreneurs. We’re always moving, creating, and blazing a new trail — one that started 150 years ago.
