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).
