What to do in Durham?
In our tour of America we have of course visited the famous places such as Las Vegas and New York as well as some lesser known locations such as Durham in North Carolina. The fact that this city is not immediately known is actually not so strange. Because a real tourist service does not have this city. And yet there is more than enough to do in this city. And to show you that this city is more than worth while, here we have created the list ‘what to do in Durham’.
What to do in Durham?
1 Durhams Bulls
If you’re in Durham, you should just go to the Durham Bulls. This baseball team is not that big but very amusing to watch. The atmosphere in this stadium is great. We also went to see the famous San Diego Padres and then this team. And actually we liked this smaller team from Durham even more fun and also cheaper. We even liked this so much that we went to watch it twice. It’s quite an experience that brings closer to American culture. Tickets can be ordered here.
2 Duke University
Would you like to see what’s going on at a university in America? Then it is sometimes interesting to walk through the domains of this great university. This is just impressive. Actually, this school is a village in its own right and just like you see it in the movies. You can also just walk around here without a pass and without anyone addressing you. There are a lot of other schools in Durham because this city is a real student town.
3 Cameron Indoor Stadium
Want to see a real American college sport? Then you’ve come to the right place at Cameron Indoor Stadium. In this fun gym you can enjoy college basketball and that is surely one of the most important sports in America. You’re being catapulted here, as it were, in an American movie. By American terms, this stadium is not that big, but that ensures that it is always full and therefore a cozy place. Be sure to go on time. Tickets can be purchased here. .
4 Walking through real American neighborhoods
What makes Durham so much fun for us is the feeling that you get to know the ‘real America’ without all the tourist activities that you can find in the big cities. Walking around the typical American neighborhoods is one of the things you have to do in Durham. The real American homes and the many natures that are present in this region make it very special to walk around here. It’s a different world. If we ever moved to America, it would be to one of these nice neighborhoods. So strolling around in these neighborhoods definitely belongs in this list of ‘what to do in Durham’!
5 American Tobacco
We ourselves have not done this museum because we are not real tobacco lovers and we cannot stand the smell of it. So whether or not this museum is really worth it, we unfortunately can’t tell you. What we can tell you is that the neighbourhood around it is very cozy because outside the museum about tobacco you also have some inviting bars and restaurants that we have visited.
6 Waterfall Way
Waterfall Way is actually not located in Durham but in the sister town of Raleigh and is actually a small waterfall that you can compare to the waterfalls of Coo. Although that’s not the only reason to go there. Because you can also take beautiful walks around this beautiful waterfall. Provide yourself with a packed lunch and plenty of drinks. Because on the spot there is not much possibility to eat or drink.
