Our Assistant Editor Caroline is heading to Durham next week—and she needs your help! Never having spent much time in the South (let alone Durham), she's looking for your recommendations and guidance: Where should she go? And what should she eat? (Psst—she's a vegetarian! And she's set on walking almost everywhere she goes.)

Here's a few things she's especially interested in checking out:

  • Farmers markets, farm stands, and the like
  • Breweries
  • Public gardens
  • Local history and local personalities—anyone she should seek out?
  • Bakeries of all sorts
  • Very good coffee
  • Weavers, potters, and other makers
  • Live music
  • Hole-in-the-wall spots
