Durham, North Carolina: Historical Town with Award-Winning Eats

Durham owes its livelihood to tobacco. As legend has it, Washington Duke left the Confederate Army in the late 1860s and walked more than 100 miles back to his farm, where he eventually began producing tobacco and cigarettes. As the tobacco industry and Duke's farm boomed, so did Durham. Washington Duke's mid-1800s home and original factory are on display at Duke Homestead State Historic Site and Tobacco Museum.

For many, Durham brings to mind Duke University, which is typically ranked among America's best colleges. In addition to top-notch programs, its 9,000-acre campus is home to some striking gothic architecture and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, a public park that the Huffington Post named among the nation's most "Insanely Beautiful Public Gardens."

In 1957, activist and minister Douglas E. Moore led a group of African Americans to stage a sit-in at a Durham ice cream parlor, which had a section reserved for white patrons; the act was widely considered to be the first sit-in of the Civil Rights Movement. Another important chapter of city history is on display at Parrish Street district, once one of the nation's strongest African-American entrepreneurial districts.

In 2008, Bon Appetit ranked Durham as "America's foodiest small town" in 2008, and Southern Living called it "the South's tastiest town" in 2013. Some of the finest restaurants reside in The American Tobacco historic district and Brightleaf Square, where former tobacco warehouses now play host to restaurants, bars, and live music venues. But, as a Southern Living writer put it, "It's not white tablecloth restaurants driving the scene here;" the movement is rooted in casual restaurants with homespun food made from local ingredients, which fit nicely in the Southern culinary tradition.
