Durham: A Fast-Growing City Alive with Possibility

Though its population is about half that of neighboring Raleigh, Durham is no runner-up to Raleigh's highly-touted accomplishments. Where Raleigh is the shiny and established big-city big sister to Durham, Durham is a bright and burgeoning community filled with opportunity—for work, for play, and for high-quality living.

It’s a community where the young come to explore new careers in a fast-growing city and the old come to enjoy their retirement surrounded by arts, culture, and entertainment. It’s a place families flock to for the great schools, students stay for the exciting nightlife, and the young and old rejoice to find themselves at home in Durham.
