Looking for inside info on Durham, NC

    I'll be moving there soon enough from up North and I'm in the middle of apartment hunting. I'm looking to gather as much information as I can about good places to live, eat, drink, shop and everything in between.

    Anything and everything is appreciated.

    Shouldn't you have done this before you decided to move there?

    Durham: Not a great place to live.

    Chapel Hill: Much nicer place to live.

    Expand your search area.

    Yes, and I have. But, I figured that people who know the area better than I might have better information about what to look forward to. I've been there for a couple nights, but that's it.

    The apartments I've been looking at are between Durham and Chapel Hill, closer to Chapel Hill.

    Nobody lives in Durham. It's too crowded.

    You definitely don't want to live in Durham (particularly if you have school-aged kids), but Chapel Hill is going to be much more expensive. A good compromise a place such as Hillsborough.

    Ok, I gotta ask: What the hell is wrong with Durham?

    Chapel Hill is also better for eating, drinking and shopping. And I say that as a Duke alum.[/ducking and running]
