Agent Picks

American Tobacco Campus

In its former life, the American Tobacco Campus was one of the largest cigarette factories in the world. This historic district was painstakingly redeveloped and now houses restaurants, a YMCA, and even North Carolina Public Radio! Within the American Tobacco District are the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the Durham Performing Arts Center.

Wimpy's Grill

No frills can be found at this legendary Old West Durham take-out joint, and that's a good thing. Serving classic diner fare (get a burger and a sweet tea), they don't take credit cards, so make sure you bring your appetite and cash.

American Dance Festival

With roots reaching back to the 1930s, Durham's American Dance Festival has now scaled to a six-week-long celebration of modern dance drawing choreographers and dance companies worldwide. Performances are split between the Durham Performing Arts Center and the Duke University Campus.
