Local Information


Welcome to Durham: A Hub of Art, Culture, & Growth

Part of the Research Triangle and home to Duke University, Durham is a destination full of character, from the vivid murals adorning buildings downtown to the locally owned shops and restaurants that line the streets. The city has a rich history, built over 150 years ago on warehouses and mills, and many of those old buildings have been integrated into the growth of the city, undergoing renovations and restorations that have transformed them into apartment buildings and breweries. From hanging out at a Durham Bulls game to hiking along the banks of Eno, there are so many things that are quintessentially Durham—don't miss out on exploring them all!

Take some time to discover a few of the highlights that life in Durham has to bring, and find your new home here today.

Local Arts & Culture

Art galleries and science museums, historic landmarks and buildings, a nationally recognized baseball team—Durham's got it all and so much more. The Museum of Life and Science is a popular spot for those with a thirst for knowledge, the Nasher Museum of Art boasts nationally renowned exhibits to explore, and the Duke Homestead is a testament to Durham's historic roots. If you're in town for the night and want an experience to remember, you really can't miss out on a Durham Bull's game. Other can't-miss highlights include the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, the Duke Lemur Center, and exploring the American Tobacco Campus!

Fun Community Events

Another element of Durham's unique culture? The jam-packed events calendar. No matter what time of year it is, you'll always find some sort of festival or celebration happening! If you're in town, you can't miss the Bull City Food & Beer Experience in February, Moogfest in April, the Festival for the Eno in July, and the World Beer Festival in October. Aside from the highly anticipated annual events (which there are plenty more of), you can also expect things like local art exhibits, trivia nights at local breweries, the night market and farmers market, and concerts on pretty much every weekend. Be sure to stay up-to-date with the calendar so you don't miss out!
