Durham, NC

With Durham's rolling geography, abundance of treelined communities and convenient location it is no wonder why so many call it “home.”

The fifth-largest city in North Carolina and home to more than 145,000, Durham is nearly synonymous with medical care and research. One in three Durham residents works in the more than 300 healthcare-related companies. In fact, Durham’s nickname is the City of Medicine.

Conveniently located between Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Research Triangle Park, Durham is home to 2 large universities, Duke and North Carolina Central.

Durham is home to 13 historic sites, three art centers, 12 signature annual events with national or regional recognition, plus dozens of other core and celebrated annual events, six science and nature centers, and great spectator sports venues.
