Durham’s City Center District is exactly what someone would expect from this type of city. The city has a retro vibe, and the restaurants, galleries, shops, and bars help to make the area exciting both day and night. Most of the architecture that is seen in Durham is original, and it helps to ensure that Durham maintains its historical and unique character. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy spending the day enjoying a free art event, and then spend a night of luxury at the 21c Museum Hotel. Wake up in the morning and enjoy some decadent crepes from Rue Cler.
