Dreaming of a Snowy Durham

Snow days cause a lot of excitement in Durham, probably because there just aren’t that many. Here are some inspirational shots that capture our rare, wintery days.

Posted By Discover Durham Staff

It doesn’t take much to give residents and visitors a chance to enjoy a rare winter wonderland. With winter officially here, it seems like the right time to enjoy a few of our favorite images from winters past and present.

American Tobacco Campus

We probably only get to see ATC like this once or twice a year, but it’s always a pretty sight.

Duke Chapel

Duke Chapel is always gorgeous, but there’s something about seeing it covered in snow that makes it extra magical.

Foster’s Market

Outdoor seating becomes much more available after a winter storm at one of Durham’s most iconic restaurants.

Tower at Mutual Plaza

On rare snowy days, it’s tough to see the “NC Mutual Life” at the top of the tower, but the shape is unmistakable.

Durham Neighborhoods

Neighborhood or Narnia? Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference.

Carolina Theatre

It’s always fun to snuggle up and watch movies when it's snowing. What better than to do it in the classic Carolina Theatre.

Alley Twenty Six

One of the most picturesque spots in the city gets even more so after snowfall.

Major the Bull

Although Major’s expression never changes, it seems particularly appropriate for a snow day mood.

Sarah P. Duke Gardens

The grounds of Sarah P. Duke Gardens are beautiful under any circumstances, but cloaked in white may be its best look of all.
