Uniquely Durham Districts

Part of what makes Durham special are several districts spread throughout the community, each with its own distinct feel and unique shopping opportunities. In Downtown Durham, the Brightleaf District is a shopping and dining destination built around two restored tobacco warehouses, while the nearby Golden Belt District is filled with artists and galleries, housed in a former hosiery factory. Other distinct shopping areas include the Ninth Street District, a college enclave complete with unique shops and restaurants along a quaint street, as well as the Rockwood District, lined with antique stores and acclaimed restaurants.
