Things to do in Durham
I do enjoy being in a new place and trying to discover the hidden gems and fun things about the area! When I moved to Durham, NC from Washington, DC I felt like I needed to intentionally search out some things to do, since I had absolutely loved the city that I came from.
It took some research from friends, and a lot of google searches, but I am proud to say that I have a list of things to do in Durham (& surrounding areas) and being one year in, I still have some things to do, but I am excited to continue exploring the area! I mean, we do have one more year here in Durham!
Is there anything else I should add to the list? Have you tried these things?
