Discover Durham Visitor Guide

Perhaps you’ve heard about Durham’s celebrated food scene, top-notch universities, or startup culture. Maybe you already know that we transcend category — and you’re coming back home. There’s something about this place: something intangible, but absolutely alluring.

We are that and more.

We are barbecue and biscuits, locally sourced small plates and craft cocktails. We’re a gritty tobacco-grown town that’s evolved into the City of Medicine. We’re activists, scholars, artists, and entrepreneurs. We’re always moving, creating, and blazing a new trail — you’ll feel that energy when you get here.

Durham is an experience to behold.

With our Visitor Guide, we invite you to dive in.
