ABOUT DURHAM<br />

Accessibility<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is within an hour’s flight or a day’s drive of more than half the nation’s population, is<br />

intersected by Interstates 40 and 85, and serviced by the Raleigh-<strong>Durham</strong> International Airport<br />

(RDU) that transports nearly 10 million passengers annually.<br />

RDU Airport Authority/DCVB<br />

Getting Here Via Air<br />

RDU International Airport is co-owned by and located midway between<br />

the two mid-sized destinations of <strong>Durham</strong> and Raleigh, North Carolina. The<br />

airport is a mere four miles from Southeast <strong>Durham</strong>, including Research<br />

Triangle Park, and only 12 miles from Downtown <strong>Durham</strong>.<br />

Named the most efficient small/medium airport in North America (2011),<br />

RDU serves nearly 10 million passengers annually with nearly 400 daily<br />

flights. Non-stop flights arrive from 38 U.S. destinations and four international<br />

locales. <strong>Durham</strong> and RDU enjoy service from nine major airlines and their<br />

regional partners.<br />

Getting Here Via Highway/Rail<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is within a day’s drive of over half the nation’s population and<br />

is also midway between Atlanta and Philadelphia. The community is wellconnected<br />

by Interstate 85 (from the north and south), Interstate 40 (from<br />

the west and east), and Interstate 540 (from the east); U.S. Highways 15, 70,<br />

and 501; as well as Megabus and Greyhound/Trailways bus service. <strong>Durham</strong>’s<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> Facts<br />

About 7 million visitors come to <strong>Durham</strong> each year for all sorts of entertainment, dining, spectator sports,<br />

medical care, and more. As the 17th smallest county in NC, with its fourth largest city, <strong>Durham</strong> packs a<br />

whole lot—from big city fun to quiet country relaxation—into a compact area of only 299 square miles.<br />

Location and Background<br />

With a population of 279,641 people, <strong>Durham</strong> is located at the<br />

pinnacle of a 3,000-square-mile North Carolina region known<br />

as the Research Triangle. <strong>Durham</strong> is also home to the region’s<br />

namesake, Research Triangle Park (RTP).<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> began as a Native American village named<br />

Adshusheer on the Great Indian Trading Path. It was re-settled<br />

by the Scottish, Irish, and English in the<br />

1700’s and named <strong>Durham</strong> in 1853. During<br />

the antebellum period, <strong>Durham</strong> plantations<br />

lay amid some of the largest holdings in the<br />

South. Their African slave quarters became<br />

the hearth of distinctively Southern cultural<br />

traditions.<br />

After the Civil War, <strong>Durham</strong> first attained<br />

international recognition with “Bull <strong>Durham</strong>”<br />

tobacco and a worldwide trust founded by<br />

the Duke family.<br />

At the turn of the Nineteenth century,<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>’s African-American enterprises,<br />

including “Black Wall Street,” captured the<br />

world’s attention, and later still, <strong>Durham</strong> Civil<br />

Rights leaders pioneered the national sit-in<br />

movement.<br />

Twenty-first century <strong>Durham</strong> is home<br />

to national centers for medicine, health<br />

care, weight management, humanities, publishing, sports, art,<br />

research, technology, and entrepreneurial start-ups.<br />

Character<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is a unique blend of ethnic groups, cultures, lifestyles,<br />

and interests. In a study of 274 similar, mid-sized, urban<br />

communities, <strong>Durham</strong> ranked first on the Creativity Index – a<br />

measure of a community’s technology, talent, and tolerance –<br />

key factors important in attracting a “creative class” of people<br />

who are particularly innovative and contribute to a successful,<br />

vital economy.<br />

Due to the influence of RTP, universities, and medical centers,<br />

homegrown influence is blended with a mix of people from<br />

throughout the country and the world.<br />

Education<br />

Trinity College moved from Randolph County<br />

to <strong>Durham</strong> in 1892. <strong>Durham</strong>ite Washington Duke<br />

donated $85,000 to facilitate the move, and Julian<br />

Carr, a local tobacco and textile executive, donated<br />

the original plot of land. Following a $40 million<br />

(over $500 million in today’s dollars) donation by<br />

Washington Duke’s son, James Buchanan Duke,<br />

Trinity College was renamed Duke University in 1924.<br />

Today, Duke is home to nearly 13,000 students, a<br />

world-class medical facility, and nationally ranked<br />

law and business schools.<br />

North Carolina Central University was founded<br />

in 1910 by Dr. James E. Shepard as the National<br />

Religious Training School and Chautauqua.<br />

The school was purchased by the state in 1923,<br />

becoming the nation’s first publicly supported liberal<br />

arts college for African Americans. Now an affiliate<br />

of the 16-campus state university system, NCCU has more than<br />

8,000 students. Its 103+ acre campus includes 56 Georgian<br />

Revival-style buildings, a sports complex, the NCCU Museum of<br />

Art, and a law school ranked among the top for women.<br />

WAKE COUNTY<br />

Research Triangle Park, is located four<br />

surrounded on three sides by the city of<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> with an extension spilling into<br />

Wake County towards Cary and Morrisville.<br />

RDU<br />

Airport<br />

CARY<br />

RALEIGH<br />

DURHAM, N.C.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> & Raleigh<br />

“Raleigh-<strong>Durham</strong>” is the name of the airport<br />

that serves two, distinct metropolitan statistical<br />

areas—one called <strong>Durham</strong>-Chapel Hill, and<br />

another called Raleigh-Cary. The airport is coowned<br />

by the cities of <strong>Durham</strong> and Raleigh along<br />

with <strong>Durham</strong> and Wake counties. RDU is located<br />

at the western edge of Wake County, midway<br />

between the cities of <strong>Durham</strong> and Raleigh.<br />

“Raleigh-<strong>Durham</strong>” is also a misused, shorthand<br />

term for the two-metro Raleigh-<strong>Durham</strong>-Cary<br />

combined statistical area. As with Baltimore and<br />

Washington, Dallas and Fort Worth, or Anaheim<br />

and Los Angeles, it is rarely feasible to use these<br />

cities as one combined convention site.<br />

The <strong>Durham</strong> Metropolitan Statistical Area,<br />

which surrounds most of RTP, boasts the highest<br />

concentrations of Ph.D.’s in the Southeast and<br />

one of the highest in the nation.<br />

City of Medicine<br />

RALEIGH, N.C.<br />

The 1910 invention of BC Headache Powder® in <strong>Durham</strong> may have<br />

been the city’s first step toward becoming a city of medicine; this was<br />

boosted by the opening of Duke University Medical School in 1930. Now,<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is home to many weight management centers, a number of<br />

world-class pharmaceutical research centers, and six modern hospitals.<br />

The Triangle Region<br />

“The Triangle” has many meanings. Often it refers to <strong>Durham</strong>-based<br />

Research Triangle Park. Originally, it referred to the creators of the<br />

research park: Duke University in <strong>Durham</strong>, NC State University in<br />

Raleigh, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Today, the<br />

term is used to refer to a “family of communities” centered around two<br />

metropolitan statistical areas, one four-county metro centered around<br />

the core city, <strong>Durham</strong>, NC, and another three-county metro centered<br />

around Raleigh and Cary.<br />

North Carolina<br />

North Carolina is the “Old North State,” a reference that originated<br />

with the division of the Carolinas in 1710. It was one of the 13 original<br />

American colonies, the first to vote for Independence, and the 12th<br />

to ratify the U.S. Constitution. The state motto is esse quam videri, “to<br />

be rather than to seem.” The dogwood is the state flower, the cardinal<br />

the state bird, and the emerald the state gem. North Carolina is now<br />

home to 9.65 million residents, who are sometimes called “Tar Heels.”<br />

This nickname dates to pre-Revolutionary days, when tar, pitch, and<br />

turpentine were extracted from North Carolina pine forests for British<br />

naval sailors.<br />

Research<br />

Triangle Park<br />

RTI International/DCVB<br />

Research Triangle Park (RTP) is the leading and largest high technology research and<br />

science park in North America.<br />

Present<br />

Today, RTP includes over 170 companies, 42,000 full time<br />

employees, and 10,000 contract workers. It is an internationallyknown<br />

hub for innovation, development, and research. RTP<br />

is surrounded by a variety of other <strong>Durham</strong> business and<br />

corporate parks, populated by pharmaceutical, microelectronic,<br />

biotechnology, telecommunications, textile, and other businesses.<br />

Some of the area’s roads are tree-lined boulevards with extensive<br />

bike and walking paths, and the whole area has ready access to<br />

major traffic thoroughfares that make for easy commuting.<br />

Past<br />

RTP was built to stop what is known as “brain drain” which<br />

referred to the departure of students who received great<br />

educations at area universities. There was a strong interest in<br />

keeping that intellectual capital close by, and so RTP was born.<br />

Founded in 1959, this 7,000-acre namesake for the entire<br />

Triangle region is two miles wide and eight miles long, based<br />

in <strong>Durham</strong> with an extension spilling into Wake County toward<br />

Cary and Morrisville. Just four miles from Downtown <strong>Durham</strong><br />

and encompassed on three sides by the City of <strong>Durham</strong>, RTP<br />

was originally named for its affiliation with three major research<br />

universities: Duke University in <strong>Durham</strong>, the University of North<br />

Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University<br />

A Nexus for Entrepreneurs<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>, a city with deep entrepreneurial roots, has<br />

garnered national attention for its progressive and<br />

innovative nature for hundreds of years. Downtown<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is home to over 75 startup companies employing<br />

more than 500 people.<br />

in Raleigh. The three original universities are now joined by<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>’s North Carolina Central University (located less than<br />

two miles from RTP), playing a major role as home to the<br />

Biomanufacturing Research Institute & Technology Enterprise<br />

(BRITE) Center for Excellence.<br />

Future<br />

The park is now embarking on a new 50-year master plan<br />

to include more lifestyle enhancements and assets, with the<br />

objective of making RTP a more functional area for those<br />

commuting in to work, as well as options to live there. With a very<br />

strategic eye on the future, new housing, lodging, dining, and<br />

retail options are now under consideration for development to<br />

make RTP a bright spot on the future’s horizon as well.<br />

Research Triangle Park is not a city, but it has a special <strong>Durham</strong><br />

postal substation – Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. It exists in<br />

a special county district, serviced by <strong>Durham</strong> utilities. For more<br />

ABOUT DURHAM<br />

History at a Glance<br />

With historic buildings adaptively reused, engaged citizens in its streets, and a booming economy, <strong>Durham</strong><br />

Bennett Place/DCVB<br />

didn’t get to be the place it is by accident. Read about its past and it’s easy to understand why <strong>Durham</strong> is<br />

such a popular destination at present.<br />

Remembering the Civil War: 150 Years Later<br />

Appomattox Courthouse is nice and all, but it’s got nothing on <strong>Durham</strong> for being an important destination for Civil War enthusiasts.<br />

Not only did the war effectively end here with the largest troop surrender at Bennett Place, but <strong>Durham</strong> also has two other state<br />

historic sites: Stagville, the largest plantation in NC; and Duke Homestead, the family farm of <strong>Durham</strong>’s famed tobacco baron family,<br />

the Dukes. So whether interest lies in history pre-, during, or post-war, <strong>Durham</strong> has sites for those seeking to commemorate the 150th<br />

anniversary of the Civil War in any way they choose.<br />

Additionally, <strong>Durham</strong>’s role in the Civil War is preserved by the “Carolinas Campaign: End of the War” Civil War Trail, which traces<br />

Union General Sherman’s march across North Carolina and culminates in <strong>Durham</strong>. Retrace the war’s final days by following the six<br />

specialized markers detailing the historical significance of <strong>Durham</strong>’s Civil War sites.<br />

Additional information about these markers and other Civil War resources in <strong>Durham</strong> can be found at www.civilwardurham.com.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> History Timeline<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is thought to<br />

be the site of an ancient<br />

Native American village<br />

named Adshusheer. Before<br />

Europeans arrived, two<br />

Native American tribes, the<br />

Eno and the Occaneechi,<br />

lived and farmed here.<br />

Explorer John Lawson called<br />

the area “the flower of the<br />

Carolinas.” During the mid-<br />

1700s, Scottish, Irish, and<br />

English colonists settled on<br />

land granted by King Charles<br />

I (for whom the Carolinas are<br />

named).<br />

Prior to the American<br />

Revolution, pioneers in what<br />

is now <strong>Durham</strong> were involved<br />

in the “War of Regulation.”<br />

and roughly midway between Raleigh and Chapel Hill.<br />

• Research Triangle Park, one of the largest research &<br />

development centers in the world, was created from<br />

southeast <strong>Durham</strong> pinelands and farmland in 1959, and is<br />

now 7,000 acres, eight miles long, and two miles wide. RTP<br />

is a private, non-profit entity owned and operated by the<br />

Research Triangle Foundation in a <strong>Durham</strong> County “special<br />

research and production district.” A new portion now spills<br />

A Fortunate Marketing Mistake<br />

The origin of <strong>Durham</strong>’s nickname as the “Bull City” has nothing<br />

to do with cattle! It was the result of a strange marketing “mistake”<br />

that was to turn into one of the most lucrative such gaffes in<br />

history. John Green of Blackwell Tobacco Company named his<br />

product “Bull” <strong>Durham</strong> Tobacco after Coleman’s Mustard, which<br />

used a bull for its logo, and which Green mistakenly thought was<br />

produced in <strong>Durham</strong>, England.<br />

By the time James B. Duke formed the American Tobacco<br />

Company in 1890 from Blackwell and four other large producers,<br />

Bull <strong>Durham</strong> was the most famous trademark in the world.<br />

Bull <strong>Durham</strong> has sparked such popular Americanisms as<br />

“bull pen” (from a Bull <strong>Durham</strong> ad painted behind the Yankees’<br />

dugout), and “shooting the bull” (most likely from chewing<br />

tobacco). The famous bull’s image was audaciously painted all<br />

over the world, including the on Great Pyramid of Egypt!<br />

James B. Duke put his own fine touch on the mechanized<br />

tobacco industry. Duke’s highly innovative and aggressive<br />

marketing strategies propelled American Tobacco into striking<br />

international prominence. He put cigarette cards into each pack.<br />

By the 1930s, these were hugely popular and, today, are soughtafter<br />

collectors’ items. Coincidentally, modern Skybox trading<br />

cards are produced in <strong>Durham</strong> today.<br />

North Carolina is the “Old North State,” a reference that<br />

originated with the division of the Carolinas in 1710. It is the first<br />

of the original thirteen colonies to vote for independence. With<br />

52,660 square miles, North Carolina now has around 10 million<br />

residents. The state motto is “Esse Quam Videre: To be rather than<br />

to seem.” Dogwood is the state flower; the cardinal is the state bird.<br />

Raleigh-<strong>Durham</strong> is not the name of a city. It is the name of an<br />

airport jointly-owned by the two separate mid-sized cities of<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> and Raleigh and <strong>Durham</strong> and Wake Counties.<br />

City of Medicine, USA<br />

The invention of B.C. Headache Powders in <strong>Durham</strong>, in 1910 is<br />

likely the city’s first step toward the City of Medicine designation,<br />

but the opening of Duke University’s Medical School in 1930<br />

was a bigger push. Today, <strong>Durham</strong> is home to many world-class<br />

pharmaceutical research companies and centers, six hospitals,<br />

and it is a leader in the field of nanobiotechnology.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> has become synonymous with medicine. Nearly one<br />

in four people in <strong>Durham</strong> work in the health-related field, making<br />

medicine a leading industry. There are hundreds of medical and<br />

health-related companies and practices with a combined payroll<br />

in the billions annually.<br />

OFFICIAL DURHAM GROUP TOUR MANUAL<br />

The city has a physician-to-population ratio 4.5 times greater<br />

than the national average, and a bed-to-population ratio three<br />

times the national average.<br />

At the heart of <strong>Durham</strong>’s reputation are six modern hospitals:<br />

Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center, Duke University<br />

Hospital, <strong>Durham</strong> Regional Hospital, <strong>Durham</strong> VA Medical Center,<br />

Lenox Baker Children’s Hospital, and the North Carolina Specialty<br />

Hospital.<br />

The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is the Nation’s first residential high school to prepare<br />

tomorrow’s leaders in the applications of science, mathematics,<br />

and technology.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> has also been very inventive. <strong>Durham</strong> has led the<br />

way with 3-D Ultrasound, Alzheimer Gene Breakthrough, AZT,<br />

Childproof caps on medicine bottles, digital cellular telephone<br />

and more.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> as a Movie Location<br />

For decades, <strong>Durham</strong> has been a very popular location for the film<br />

and movie industry. However, <strong>Durham</strong> as a subject for Hollywood<br />

dates back even further to a film called Brightleaf, a 1950 Warner<br />

Brothers release starring Gary Cooper and Lauren Bacall.<br />

The 1981 thriller, Brainstorm, was filmed in southeast <strong>Durham</strong><br />

at Research Triangle Park. It starred Natalie Wood in her final<br />

performance, Christopher Walken, and Cliff Robertson in a story<br />

about a scientist gaining access to other people’s minds.<br />

In 1987, the blockbuster Bull <strong>Durham</strong>, starring Kevin Costner,<br />

Susan Sarandon, and introducing Tim Robbins, was filmed in various<br />

locations around Downtown <strong>Durham</strong> and produced by <strong>Durham</strong><br />

native Thom Mount. Many scenes were filmed at the Historic<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> Athletic Park, still an operating field that is easy to see.<br />

Today, the Bulls play at the <strong>Durham</strong> Bulls Athletic Park, a 10,000 seat<br />

stadium with modern amenities that retains its quaint Southern<br />

charm.<br />

Other movies that filmed in <strong>Durham</strong> are:<br />

• Weeds, starring Nick Nolte and Rick Taggart, was filmed at<br />

North Carolina Central University and Duke University,<br />

• The Handmaid’s Tale, starring Robert Duvall and Faye<br />

Dunaway was filmed at locations around downtown<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>, including Duke University,<br />

• The Program, starring James Caan, premiered at, and was<br />

filmed on, the Duke Campus,<br />

• Getting In, starring Andrew McCarthy, was filmed in various<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> locations, including Duke University,<br />

• Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfuss starred in the 1990 film, Once<br />

Around, which was shot in the Forest Hills residential area, and<br />

• Kiss the Girls, starring Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd,<br />

was filmed here in the spring of 1996,<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is also slated to be the backdrop for several other<br />

productions, but it’s simply too early to reveal which ones.<br />

in a city of this size with so many prosperous…”<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is also home to NC Mutual Life Insurance Co., now the<br />

nation’s largest black-owned financial institution, and M+F Bank,<br />

one of the nation’s first African-American-owned banks. Today,<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> is home to three of the top ten businesses on Black<br />

Enterprise magazine's top 100 list.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> African-Americans are national leaders in education,<br />

from Dr. James E. Shepard, founder of NC Central University, the<br />

first publicly funded liberal arts college for African-Americans<br />

in the country; to historian John Hope Franklin, recipient of the<br />

nation’s highest civilian honor - the Presidential Medal of Freedom,<br />

and Chairman of the President's Commission on Race Relations; to<br />

Ben Ruffin, the first black chairman of the Board of Governors of<br />

the University of North Carolina.<br />

The Bull City has the Blues<br />

One of the South’s great musical traditions, the Blues, found<br />

a special home in <strong>Durham</strong> in the late 1930s. Since then, the Bull<br />

City has become the center for the Piedmont Blues, a sensitive<br />

and delicate form of the blues played and recorded by the likes of<br />

Blind Boy Fuller, Bull City Red, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, and<br />

legendary guitarist Reverend Gary Davis. These and other artists,<br />

living and performing in <strong>Durham</strong>, playing on the streets and<br />

at the tobacco auctions, as well as in the clubs, gave rise to the<br />

terms “Bull City Blues” and “Homesick and Lonesome.”<br />

Like the other Blues styles, those played in Memphis, the<br />

Mississippi Delta and post-war Chicago, Bull City Blues helped<br />

define its community, as it contributed to our musical heritage.<br />

Today, the Piedmont Blues is enjoyed at Festival for the<br />

Eno performances in July, the Bull <strong>Durham</strong> Blues Festival in<br />

September, and various other times and venues around the<br />

community, played by contemporary artists such as John Dee<br />

Holeman, Fris Holloway, and Scott Ainslie.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>’s African-American Heritage<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> African-Americans fostered one of the nation’s<br />

strongest entrepreneurial enclaves, known as “Black Wall Street.”<br />

A mural celebrates the history of Black Wall Street at the Heritage<br />

Square shopping center in <strong>Durham</strong> as do sculptures on Parrish<br />

Street which was the actual street dubbed Black Wall Street.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> African-Americans gained national attention by<br />

pioneering the Carolina or Piedmont Blues, spearheaded by Blind<br />

Boy Fuller and Reverend Gary Davis. Then came Clyde McPhatter,<br />

founder of the Drifters and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of<br />

Fame. Today the musical and artistic influence is much more varied<br />

and intense from those either living in, or being from <strong>Durham</strong>.<br />

Consider Grammy nominee and Emmy Award-winning jazz artist<br />

Nneena Freelon; choreographer Chuck Davis, winner of North<br />

Carolina's highest honor - The Award in Fine Arts; internationally<br />

acclaimed Grammy-winning saxophone player Branford Marsalis;<br />

global fashion icon Andre Leon Talley; and 11 time Grammy<br />

-winning gospel singer Shirley Caesar. The late artist Ernie Barnes<br />

was an Official Artist of the Olympic Games, too.<br />

Booker T. Washington declared <strong>Durham</strong> ”the city of Negro<br />

enterprise…of all the Southern cities I visited I found here the<br />

sanest attitude of the white people toward the black… I never saw<br />

City of Champions<br />

Triple-A baseball club co-owned by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays;<br />

the Duke University Blue Devils, including the four-time national<br />

championship men's basketball team, and the North Carolina<br />

Central University Eagles, including the national champion men's<br />

basketball team.<br />

Many famous athletes have played in <strong>Durham</strong>, including<br />

Baseball Hall of Famers Joe Morgan, who played for the <strong>Durham</strong><br />

Dwayne Washington played in the NFL and Rodney Rodgers,<br />

Christian Laettner, Danny Ferry, and Grant Hill in the NBA. Some<br />

up-and-comers in the NBA have ties to <strong>Durham</strong>: both Kyrie Irving<br />

and Austin Rivers played for Duke. Roger Craig, the only person to<br />

play, coach, and manage in the World Series, is from <strong>Durham</strong>.<br />

Duke became the first school in history to produce four firstround<br />

NBA draft picks and Duke’s Elton Brand was the overall No.<br />

1 pick by the Chicago Bulls.<br />

Sam Jones, the first African American drafted in the first round<br />

by the NBA, played at NCCU.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> has 10 golf courses, seven of which are public or semiprivate<br />

About DCVB<br />

The <strong>Durham</strong> Convention & Visitors Bureau (DCVB)<br />

is <strong>Durham</strong>’s marketing agency, a role it has<br />

enjoyed since its founding in 1989.<br />

DCVB’s main role is to tell the <strong>Durham</strong> story and to<br />

ensure that <strong>Durham</strong> is top of mind and on the list<br />

of consideration as a place for a vacation, weekend<br />

getaway, meeting, convention, or sporting event.<br />

DCVB was chartered by state and local<br />

governments to attract and serve visitors to<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>. As such, it is not a membership agency<br />

and promotes each and every visitor-related<br />

business and organization in <strong>Durham</strong>.<br />

DCVB’s work on behalf of <strong>Durham</strong> has resulted in<br />

a thriving visitor economy, which brought 6.88<br />

million visitors last year spending more than $700<br />

million and generating more than 12,500 jobs.<br />

THINGS TO SEE & DO<br />

Nightlife<br />

In <strong>Durham</strong>, music is a part of the cultural landscape. <strong>Durham</strong>’s decidedly eclectic music scene<br />

melds deep musical traditions with a broad representation of genres and an array of new venues.<br />

Ash Crowe/DCVB<br />

Location and Background<br />

Each of <strong>Durham</strong>’s music venues offers a unique expression of the city’s sense of<br />

place. Duke Coffeehouse, a small venue located on Duke’s campus, has been feeding<br />

the community with Indie and experimental music since 1982, making it <strong>Durham</strong>’s<br />

longest-running music venue. Family-friendly music hot spot, Broad Street Café,<br />

frequently showcases the region’s brightest up-and-coming singer-songwriters<br />

and hosts a weekly open-mic night. The Pinhook is the centerpiece of <strong>Durham</strong>’s<br />

gritty indie music scene where show-goers can expect to see nationally touring<br />

experimental folk artists as well as the region’s top talent.<br />

The city is alive with<br />

Beyú Caffé, a welcoming and social place for music<br />

music to be enjoyed lovers of all ages, and Whiskey, a dark, upscale gathering<br />

place, keep jazz alive in Downtown <strong>Durham</strong>. Both the<br />

nearly every day of the<br />

area’s hottest up-and-comers and most esteemed jazz<br />

week at even the most musicians take the stage. You’re just as likely to stumble<br />

unexpected places. upon a surprise set by <strong>Durham</strong>’s Grammy-winning<br />

saxophonist Branford Marsalis as students from the<br />

prestigious jazz program at North Carolina Central University. Also on Main Street,<br />

Talk of the Town is <strong>Durham</strong>’s long-running traditional R&B club. Saturdays are a best<br />

bet for experiencing talent from around the Triangle. In South <strong>Durham</strong>, Papa Mojo’s<br />

Roadhouse serves up a side of live music each weekend alongside its signature,<br />

authentic Cajun fare.<br />

Casbah is located in the heart of the Brightleaf District. The former flower shop<br />

turned ambient 300-person capacity venue is a mainstay for seeing nationally touring<br />

Americana acts as well as top local talent. In the nearby Central Park District, situated<br />

between Fullsteam Brewery and the Historic <strong>Durham</strong> Athletic Park, lies Motorco<br />

Music Hall. The former mid-century car dealership is <strong>Durham</strong>’s largest music venue<br />

and is known to book nationally touring acts as well as the area’s biggest headliners.<br />

Places to<br />

Lifelong memories are sometimes made by context alone – it’s not so much what you<br />

do, but with whom and where. The same thought can be applied when considering<br />

group down time when visiting <strong>Durham</strong>. Putting group tour participants in unique<br />

leisure situations can really enhance the visitor experience, and <strong>Durham</strong> has lots of<br />

options to do just that.<br />

THINGS TO SEE & DO<br />

Dining & Shopping<br />

Like the population here, <strong>Durham</strong>’s food scene is<br />

pretty diverse. From fine dining restaurants that<br />

earn national acclaim to amazing, locally sourced food served from trucks, <strong>Durham</strong>’s food scene<br />

rarely leaves people hungry.<br />

Left -Jessie Gladin-Kramer/DCVB; Right -The Streets at Southpoint/DCVB<br />

<strong>Durham</strong>’s food scene has an exceptional reputation –<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> was voted “The South’s Tastiest Town” by Southern<br />

Living Magazine in 2013. The New York Times wrote about it<br />

several times in 2013 alone, and Bon Appetit called it “America’s<br />

Foodiest Small Town.” It is home to a thriving community of<br />

acclaimed chefs in addition to more than 500 restaurants with<br />

offerings ranging from classic North Carolina barbecue to the<br />

height of creative culinary expression and all points in between.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> also has a chef-driven mobile food scene that is growing rapidly and has<br />

repeatedly been the subject of major media attention. Food trucks are a great way<br />

to get groups out for a unique culinary experience. <strong>Durham</strong> has one of the country’s<br />

most active mobile dining scenes, and those trucks often congregate in places so that<br />

group tour participants can have access to many different styles of food in a fun and<br />

relaxed atmosphere.<br />

Rare is the appetite <strong>Durham</strong>’s restaurants and chefs can’t satisfy, and many restaurants offer<br />

private dining and special menus to accommodate groups. For an enjoyable afternoon or<br />

evening, dine-arounds can be arranged to include clusters of these restaurants. Request<br />

the Official <strong>Durham</strong> Visitors & Relocation Guide for a complete listing of restaurants.<br />

<strong>Durham</strong> also offers considerable unique shopping opportunities in many different<br />

districts. Turn-of-the-nineteenth-century tobacco warehouses have been repurposed<br />

as specialty stores and restaurants at Brightleaf Square, located in the historic<br />

Downtown arts and entertainment district. Head to Ninth Street, a funky and eclectic<br />

shopping district near Duke University’s East Campus, to find new and used books,<br />

vinyl records, toys, natural-fiber clothing, gelati, organic produce, and more. Or visit<br />

one of the 20+ antique and collectibles shops scattered throughout the community<br />

for uniquely <strong>Durham</strong> treasures.<br />

The Streets at Southpoint, a 1.3-million-square-foot super-regional mall, boasts a<br />

17-screen cinema including IMAX, the open-air “Main Street” dining and shopping<br />

area, and the state’s first Nordstrom, along with Apple, Cole Haan, Crate & Barrel,<br />

Williams-Sonoma, and many other stores unique to the area. It joins newly renovated<br />

Northgate in offering <strong>Durham</strong> shoppers access to hundreds of nationally known stores<br />

as well as local retailers, galleries, and entertainment. Purchase <strong>Durham</strong> memorabilia<br />

and gifts at the <strong>Durham</strong> Visitor Information Center or online at www.durhamstuff.com.<br />
