Yep, we've got all of the places where you can go on a great date in Durham. And, of course, one of the most memorable sports romances happened here ("Bull Durham," remember?). But you asked, we listened, and we curated a list of suggestions from our Instagram followers with all the places they enjoy.

Sarah P. Duke Gardens

We've seen weddings, proposals, and maternity shoots here. It all starts with a little kiss in the gardens, or by a river ...

The Alley 26 Alley

Okay, we get it. It's an alley (keep it classy, folks). But it's the most adorable alley ever.

The Museum at 21c

Forget the walls, y'all. The most beautiful work of art is probably right in front of you.

The Vault at 21c

This hidden locale offers sultry speakeasy vibes ❤️

A Durham Bulls Game

“Bull Durham” is one of the best romcoms of all-time so it's only fitting to visit the new park or the one where it was filmed 🥰

Durham Central Park Skate Park

Carve out a sweet moment with your boo with an unconventionally romantic backdrop as you stroll through downtown.

The Parlour

These sweet treats practically beg to be enjoyed with your sweetie. When the weather is nice, hop outside to CCB plaza and pick a bench to share.

The Durham Rooftop

You'll probably feel on top of the world after a moment with your honey at high altitude.
