2024 Visitors & Relocation Guide

Whether you're thinking about putting down roots in Durham or just visiting for the weekend, pick up a copy of our 2024 Visitors & Relocation Guide, which is filled with helpful resources โ€“ from school info to a look at our real estate market to an ultimate Durham checklist.

Our job at Durham Magazine is to put out a publication aimed specifically at the residents of the city of Durham. But once a year we also produce a guide just for visitors and folks who are new to the area, and we have so much fun introducing these readers to all the wonderful things about our city.

This year's guide provides readers with everything there is to know about living here, from our gyms, salons and retirement centers to our dining and entertainment scenes. Visitors can flip through the pages for ideas of what to see and do while they're here, and relocators can use this issue's directories and pages of important phone numbers to make the transition to their new home a breeze. Click on the image above to view the guide in full. If you'd like a hard copy for yourself or out-of-town guests, stop by our office at 1777 Fordham Blvd., Ste. 105, in Chapel Hill to pick up a copy.

Welcome to Durham! We hope you enjoy it here.
