We scheduled times for the pool but that worked out wonderfully. I wish we could have used the lawn chairs outside but that was closed unfortunately due to the virus. It was a nice room and very friendly staff

Durham, North Carolina, is the home of Duke University, and is a charming sightseeing spot, sitting outside the city of Raleigh. Take a tour of the university campus to experience a classic US school, complete with shaded quads, historic buildings, and a popular sports team – the Blue Devils. Elsewhere in the city, contemporary art is displayed in the 21c Museum, plantation life is remembered in Stagville, and the Durham Bulls play baseball to huge crowds of fans.

Rent a car through Orbitz to explore Durham and see it all, as the city extends far beyond the attractive university campus to forests and state parks.


Durham and beyond: Drive through North Carolina

Durham is situated near charming cities and curious historical sights. Use your rental car to explore far and wide, and add these three destinations to your itinerary.

Chapel Hill

The neighboring city of Chapel Hill is another university town, with a popular basketball team. Like Durham, it’s also packed with pleasant spots across the town. Take time to explore the perfectly picturesque town center. The North Carolina Botanical Garden and the Coker Arboretum offer spaces to relax, while the Ackland Art Museum displays some of the university’s vast collections.

Journey time: Around 25 minutes

Distance: Approximately 15 miles

Raleigh

North Carolina’s cool capital is just a short trip from Durham, and it’s worth visiting for the spacious parks and appealing museums. The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences is one of the big draws, immediately recognizable for the giant globe that marks its entrance. Elsewhere, seek out the sculptures scattered throughout the grounds of the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Journey time: Around 35 minutes

Distance: Approximately 25 miles

Old Salem

The city of Winston-Salem is a modern, dynamic destination that hides a pocket of history where time has seemingly stopped. Old Salem was originally a Moravian religious settlement, and it has retained much of its initial charm and character. Costumed guides show you around the 18th-century settlement – don’t miss the opportunity to try Moravian sugar cakes, a traditional local treat.

Journey time: Around 1 hour 20 minutes

Distance: Approximately 80 miles
