Durham may be known as the hometown of University of New Hampshire’s beautiful campus (one of the safest and greenest in the country!), but in addition to being a quintessential New England college town, Durham has so much to offer.

Located on the banks of Great Bay and Oyster River, Durham boasts a beautiful natural landscape with acres upon acres of terrain to explore, and history to learn! We especially love sledding down Wagon Hill in the winter months, and hiking along the trails to view the beautiful foliage in the fall. On Durham’s Main Street, you’ll find a variety coffee shops, cafes, eateries, and local shops (which may be especially appealing to all of our Wildcat fans out there), as well as historic sights, and a stunning display of foliage come fall.
