The City Of Medicine
Durham, "the City of Medicine" has earned a reputation for outstanding medical accomplishments. These include being home to Duke University Hospital and Medical Center, Durham Regional Hospital, and several major healthcare provider companies. It is also hosts RTP (Research Triangle Park); the largest university related Research Park in the world. If you are in the medical field, you may consider this the ideal place to live, with over 40,000 people employed in a healthcare related job.
There is much more to Durham than its medical history. Rich in culture with diverse activities, Durham residents, and visitors may enjoy the abundant opportunities of things to see and do. Nature lovers will surely appreciate the major Greenways and Trails for biking, walking, or hiking, the scenic lakes and rivers, and the beautiful gardens at Duke University.
There is a wealth of activities for any one; including art museums and studios, historic sites, performances at theatres and auditoriums, and a rich nightlife with great restaurants, live music, and nightclubs. Everyone loves a ballgame! Why not spend a night with family and friends at a Durham Bulls game followed with a terrific fireworks show.
With constant new development, Durham could be home to anyone. Check out the restored buildings that have become condominiums, the luxurious estate homes on a golf course, or beautiful new homes conveniently located to major highways and shopping.
