We wasted gas driving from our hotel to this destination only to discover there is really nothing there worth visiting.

Another great place in downtown Durham to visit. Lots of restaurants to choose from and there is also a record shop where you can find music from way back. The outdoor entertainment Brightleaf offers is also amazing.

We dined at the Little Dipper Fondue restaurant for a fun change. The service was horrible and our tip reflected it!

We spent a great evening here, listening to live music and enjoying a cool drink. You can also eat at the restaurants also.

Lots of little shops & restaurants, grab a table and a few friends and enjoy being outdoors after browsing the shops. A fun place to visit!

The shops are really nice especially Morgan's across the street. We ate in a Chimas a a Brazilian bbq. A little pricey but excellent. There are bands on the weekend in the square. Great fun!

Bright, cheery mall with many great restaurants. Art studios, record shop make it a great place to stroll before or after dining.
