We dined at the Little Dipper and loved it! It was quaint and food and sauces were delicious. Music at an outside bar was fantastic late night and a great Icecream shop!

Lots of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. May of the restaurants have outdoor seating which was nice in the spring. Beautiful old brick buildings on a tree lined street

This is a quaint area to visit, a well-done renovation and repurposing of former tobacco warehouses.There are several good restaurants, plus a few stores and business offices. A few of the restaurants offer outdoor seating, which is great when the weather is nice.

This center has an interesting history, and there are some very interesting shops to peruse here. And there is a large shop across the street - don't miss it!

Bright leaf square, while hidden between two buildings, is full of great shops and restaurants. It is lit up beautifully at night and a great place to walk around!

Brightleaf Square has some good restaurants but really it is a nice place to take a walk in Durham under the lights. There are some nice shops and you can check out "the can-opener" underpass which has been on the news.

Maybe you should visit it. You'll see plenty of niche shops in the area. You won't find a Walmart or Target here as this is a converted tobacco warehouse to accommodate shoppes and restaurants.
