Love this place at night, it's beautiful, several of the restaurants offer seating outside, with cobblestone walkway, and lighting strung all along the walkway. There are so many eating options from Fondue to burgers, mexican, and sushi.

Specialty stores and cute things to find. A couple of eating places here (although I didn't eat) and an ice cream store that makes amazing cappuccinos!

Quaint little area of Durham with shops and eateries alike. Not very big and a lot of shops were closed on Sunday, but worth a stop.

A short stroll through the courtyard in this historic complex reveals a variety of shops and restaurants. We especially liked Clouds Brewing, a brilliant brewpub with tasty Shrimp & Grits among other treats. A wonderful example of re-purposed tobacco company brick warehouse buildings with an...More
