Durham

— 2 nights

Flowers of the Carolinas

Once the seat of a thriving tobacco industry, Durham has seen some significant moments in American history.
Get outdoors at Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve and Fletcher Park. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Carrboro Farmers Market and FRANK Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to McIntyre's Fine Books and Bookends (in Pittsboro) and Raleigh (North Hills, Crabtree Valley Mall, &more). It doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Sarah P. Duke Gardens and look for all kinds of wild species at JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University.

Charlotte to Durham is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in August, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sun) to allow enough time to drive back home.
