Although winter is here, the temperature around Durham has been unseasonably warm this year. For those of you who are waiting for snow, we are sure it is on the way at some point. But, in the meantime, maybe we all should take advantage of the mild weather and check out some (FREE) outdoor activities around Durham. Listed below are a few that you might be interested in:
American Tobacco Company
This area used to be home to the Lucky Strike Cigarette Company, but has been transformed into a huge retail and dining area right in downtown Durham. It’s super fun to walk around check out all the different spots. There are all types of restaurants from Cuban to sushi that are excellent.
There are tons of activities to do around there during the day as well like giant chess or enjoying a beer outside. It’s definitely a fun and trendy spot right there near downtown. It’s also right next to the Durham Bull’s stadium so it’s a great spot to stop in the springtime to catch a game.
Walk Duke University
Duke’s campus is gorgeous and is definitely worth walking around. While there, check out the Duke Chapel. They have daily prayers open to the public and it is a lovely, decadent place. The buildings are fun to walk around, there are well maintained trails, and there is even a massive garden to explore.
21 C Art Museum
This museum is really interesting. It’s located on the second floor of a modern and new(er) hotel in Durham. is definitely an innovative and interesting idea to have the art in a hotel. Do not be fooled by the odd building’s outside. Once you go in, go to the left up the stairs and you’ll find the museum and hotel check-in on the second floor.
See the Durham Bull
Bulls have been the symbol of Durham since the 1800s so a trip to Durham isn’t complete without a stop at this famous statue! It’s definitely a very instagrammable spot and is very close to the 21 C Art Museum.
