5 Reasons to Visit the Visitor Info Center

Discover Durham invites you to visit the new Visitor Info Center, a celebration of Durham's history and future. The new location at 212 W Main St # 101, is more spacious and well-equipped than ever before, with abundant natural light, tall ceilings, and interactive touchscreen displays.

Located in the historic Trust Building in Downtown Durham, the structure was the tallest building in North Carolina when it was constructed in 1905 and the city's first multi-story office building.

The renovated space represents a renewed commitment to creating multisensory experiences for both guests and community members in a beautiful, modern space. Stop by, hang out, stay awhile - this space is yours.

Here are just a few of the reasons you should visit our new location:

1. Get personalized recommendations from a Durham Experience Expert

While Durhamites are usually pretty friendly folks, the Experience Experts at the Durham Visitor Info Center are truly the authorities on Durham. Whether you need help finding something to do or discovering how to get there, the experts will set you on the right path.

2. Plan your visit with interactive tools

Get inspired to explore everything the Bull City has to offer. Orient yourself with our interactive touch screens and digital displays. Use tablets to check out what's happening in Durham on social media, watch videos, or learn more about specific Durham destinations. If you're looking for something to take with you, choose from several free printed publications, including maps, guides, walking tours, and more.

3. Relax and recharge with free Wi-Fi and outlets

Finding free Internet access can be a challenge while traveling. The Durham Visitor Info Center provides free wireless internet and a recharging station for guests. If you just need a place to hang out after an afternoon spent exploring Downtown Durham, feel free to relax on our couches, refill water bottles, or use the restrooms.

4. Remember your trip with Durham postcards and gifts

The Durham Visitor Info Center is one of the only places in town that regularly carries a variety of Durham postcards. Mail a postcard to Aunt Edna in Peoria and tell her about a wonderful trip to Durham.

5. We really want to see you!

...Seriously, we love visitors. So stop by and see us some time, okay?
