Durham Retirement

Durham's culture of youthful vibrancy makes it especially welcoming to retiring newcomers. Affordable housing options include urban apartments, sleepy suburbs, historic mill villages, and farm houses with plenty of land so that your golden years can have the setting you always dreamed of.

Downtown Durham is easily enjoyed on foot, and walking trails and parks throughout the city make for a very pleasant afternoon in the springtime (or fall – that's the benefit of a mild climate). The parks and recreation department also runs a senior games program with everything from basketball and cheerleading to woodworking and quilting so you can stay active by keeping up old hobbies or finding new ones.
