We are a foody town.... but there is a lot more too. I am going to devote this post to telling you about some of the cool things to do in Durham that do not involve eating.
The Nasher - A very cool museum located on Duke Campus. $5 for adults, free for kids and Duke faculty and staff.
The Carolina Theater - A neat old movie theater (that serves beer). They usually have more artsy films. They also have stage productions (like Ladysmith Black Mambazo).
Through this Lens - Photography gallery and framing shop. One of my personal favorites.
Casbah - A music venue
Motorco Music Hall - A very cool music venue and also our neighbors.
Man Bites Dog - Another neighbor and a cute little theater that is having a film festival this weekend
The American Tobacco Trail - A great place to walk, run, or ride a bike.
Duke Forrest - A great place to walk or run. They also have an exercise section on the trail next to the Duke campus.
Eno - A nice place for a hike.
Durham Bulls - Going to a game in the summer is a lot of fun.
Golden Belt - Art and Yoga
Barnstormers - Go for a ride in a biplane. I desperately want to walk out on the wing of one of these.
Duke Lemur Center - Who does not like Lemurs?
The Life and Science Museum - Good for the kiddie beans.
That should be a good start for you. If you have some place you love that is not food related, please fill me in.
