Once the seat of a thriving tobacco industry, Durham has seen some significant moments in American history.
Get outdoors at Duke Lemur Center and Neuse River Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bennett Place Historic Site and Stagville State Historic Site. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Durham: Raleigh (Mordecai Historic Park, Historic Yates Mill County Park, &more), Sanford (San-Lee Park, Tobacco Road Golf Club, &more) and Raven Rock State Park (in Lillington). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, steep yourself in history at Ayr Mount Historic Site, witness the site of a historic battle at Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site, and work some fitness into your day at Riverwalk.
