Hightail it to Durham.

What are you waiting for? We believe refueling your soul > refilling your tank. Whether you’re a list maker or prefer to begin your excursions with a last-minute dash out of the door, we’ve got the tools to ensure you don’t miss a thing. Come as you are and leave with something more.

Here for a weekend? We’ve got an event calendar that will serve up just the right amount of excitement. (It’s a shame you will only have about 72 hours to eat your way through the Tastiest Town in the South, though). Thinking about staying longer? We knew you would. Stay in comfort at our expansive list of accommodations in the Hotels & Inns link below.

Durham is where you can plan to have the whole family (including the dog!) along for the ride. It's also where being grown has never felt so good – break away from your herd and make the kids jealous.

We’d be remiss if we tried to tell you exactly what you should expect when you arrive in Durham. That’s up to you.
