Durham: A Triangle Tourist’s Gem

A great example of a treasure in our backyard is the American Tobacco District in Durham. It’s located right next to the Durham Bulls baseball field. If you haven’t made it to a game, you’re missing out on a great experience!

In addition, DPAC is a leading venue in the South and brings some of the best and brightest talent to the Triangle. There’s not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are amazing!

It’s Easy to Get Around Town

Sometimes the logistics of getting around can be a deterrent especially if you have young children with you, but parking is easy in the parking deck and makes it easy to access the Bulls, any restaurant in the area, DPAC, or the free concerts in the summer.

There’s always a new restaurant, show, sporting opportunity, street fair, community event, or family friendly venue to plug into. Take some time to be a tourist in the Triangle!
