Waterways & Water Activities
With boating, canoeing, swimming, spraygrounds, and more, Durham has the water activities you need.
We’re not just brick and concrete. Nestled midway between sand, sails and mountain peaks, Durham has its own distinct flavor. We enjoy our Carolina spring and summer months in refreshing natural environments, both urban and rustic. Boating, canoeing, swimming, spraygrounds ... our water activities are perfect for family, solo or couple adventures. Explore our waterways (creeks, rivers and lakes), perfect backdrops for your favorite refreshing forays, and well equipped for different activities to make the moment memorable. The Eno River, Falls Lake, and Lake Michie are just the start — opportunities to hike, boat, fish and swim are plentiful in Durham.
