Spotlights of Durham
Originally founded in 1838, Duke University is a private research university held in high regard with an acceptance rate of 8%.

Downtown Durham is home to a variety of local staples, from the Durham Bulls Stadium to the Durham Performing Arts Center. While it is too much to experience in just one day’s worth of time, Downtown Durham’s “Walk-A-Bull” landscape lays out all the cool places to visit, shop, and eat in the downtown area, which spans just under a square mile.
Durham Bulls Stadium
Enough bullin’ around; everyone wants to hear “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Home to the Durham Bulls baseball team, the stadium brings the full “ole ball game” experience with historic downtown Durham architecture and an old-style manual scoreboard.
