Durham Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Durham, North Carolina - NC, USA)

With strong connections to the neighboring university town of Chapel Hill and nearby Raleigh, the small city of Durham has grown from a tiny railroad town with expansive tobacco plantations to a modern city whose fortunes are beginning to return, following economic problems in the sixties. Much of the city's success can be attributed to the wealthy and extremely influential Duke family and their namesake Duke University.

In the downtown Durham of today, many of the attractions, eateries and shops are based around the former brick-built warehouses, now renovated after previously being used to store tobacco. Families will enjoy checking out the Lemur Center and wandering around the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, while the Durham Bulls Athletic Park offers the chance to take in an exciting baseball game on a sunny summer's afternoon.

North Carolina visitors heading to the state's Research Triangle area should take a look at the Durham links shown here.
