What we're about

This group is for people looking to explore Durham. There are so many great places and things to do in the Durham area but sometimes its hard to know what to do on a given day. We're a group for folks of all ages to get to know one another and do fun things together! Examples of events include festivals, new restaurants, walks on local trails, board game nights, pickup sports games, and more.

A Meetup group's success if dependent on the willingness of its members to step up and organize/post/host events. If you'd like to be an Event Organizer for the group, please contact the organizers via the information below.
