Durham: "The Bull City"

Its nicknames reflect its diverse histories — the Bull City (for its tobacco heritage) and the City of Medicine (for its world-renowned healthcare services). Durham has deep roots in both agriculture and healthcare. Durham is still known to this day for its charming industrial-turned-commercial districts and progressive hospital systems, and recently Durham has exploded onto the culinary scene, being named one of the Best "Foodie" Spots in The US! 

 Durham is a hub of performing arts and culture, offering a variety of natural attractions, and is the epicenter of research in the Triangle Area
