Durham Explorations

20151031_155007title

We started our current road trip on Halloween when we drove across North Carolina to Durham to attend the Duke vs. University of Miami football game. You probably heard about the game because of the final play which made pretty much every newscast. The game was definitely exciting to the very end.

Since the kickoff wasn’t until 7 pm, we had a few hours free in the afternoon to explore a little bit of Durham. One of my husband’s childhood friends lives there and recommended we check out the American Tobacco Campus, a renovated old tobacco factory that’s been converted to house businesses and restaurants. Next door to the Campus is the baseball stadium where the Durham Bulls semi-pro team plays. Of course, baseball season is over, so the stadium was empty.

The soothing sound of water resounds through the entire open area of the campus. There is a man-made “river” flowing downhill in the open courtyard area between the buildings. There are fountains, a waterfall, and water cascading down steps. We walked around the area for a while and then had dinner in one of the restaurants.
