Tips / Destination

Whether you’re headed to Durham, North Carolina, for work or play, these are the four spots you’ll want to visit before you leave.


American Tobacco Campus

The American Tobacco Campus is truly a spot you’ll see and instantly think, wow, I’d love to work here! The reclaimed tobacco and industry structures are now home to startup offices, breweries, shops, theaters, businesses and more, including the Burt’s Bees Headquarters and original Burt’s cabin. It’s all interwoven with beautiful green space and water features and lots of spots to sit and enjoy the historic view.


Durham Performing Arts Center

If you’ve ever been turned off by Broadway’s ticket prices and crowds, but you can’t quite find the same high-caliber performances anywhere else, you’ve just found the perfect spot. Durham Performing Arts Center is easily accessible from downtown, more affordable than performing arts centers in major cities on the East Coast and always bringing in top talent from Broadway. Some of the upcoming shows include Rock of Ages, Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, Cruel Intentions and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.


Durham Bulls Athletic Park

This minor league baseball stadium is unique for several reasons. It was featured in the 1980s rom-com starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon, Bull Durham. It’s home to the first brewery in the United States owned by a minor league team, Bull Durham Beer Company. It also trades out conventional concessions for local foods and vendors you won’t find anywhere else. On top of all that, it’s a great spot for some classic Americana, with its intimate feel, great views from every seat, affordable ticket and concession prices and weekly fireworks shows.


Duke Lemur Center

You probably wouldn’t expect Durham to be home to the world’s second-largest concentration of lemurs, but then there’s the Duke Lemur Center. It houses around 250 lemurs across 21 lemur species, the largest collection of lemurs outside Madagascar. Take a tour to see these cuties up close.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

ATL Skypointe

Beyond being a major hub in the global transportation network, Hartsfield-Jackson is also proud to be a major hub for exciting, high-quality retail options through our award-winning concessions program, ATL Skypointe.

Winter Hiking Gear

For winter hikes or cold-weather activity in general, it’s important to stay warm and protected from the elements. With that said, you’ll also be pretty active and may want to be mobile, able to remove or add layers and adapt to your changing body temperature. Consider packing some gear to help you stay on top of it all.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
