Once the seat of a thriving tobacco industry, Durham has seen some significant moments in American history.
Venture out of the city with trips to Raleigh (Pullen Park, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, &more), Airborne and Special Operations Museum (in Fayetteville) and International Civil Rights Center & Museum (in Greensboro). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, have some family-friendly fun at Urban Axes Durham, get curious at Museum of Life + Science, and don't miss a visit to American Tobacco Campus.
