The historic and geographic soul of a vibrant, diverse, and creative Southern city, Downtown Durham is home to several landmarks on the National Register of Historic Places and is alive with food, arts, culture, and dozens of events throughout the year, and offers something new with every visit.
Downtown is comprised of seven unique districts, each with its own personality. They are easily explored by foot or by a free ride on the Bull City Connector, a bus route connecting downtown and Duke University.
Named the South’s Tastiest Town by Southern Living magazine, Durham also continues to rack up dining accolades. Downtown serves as a hot spot for unique, local restaurants.
