Durham often plays second fiddle to its sister city, Raleigh. But Durham is indeed its own separate and unique city, offering many things to see and do for those of all ages. 

There are 68 parks located throughout the city. With over 30 miles of trails and greenways, you’ll find lots of opportunities for exercise and adventure. They offer walking, biking, and hiking trails for both humans and canines to enjoy. 

If you love the water, you can visit one of their two indoor pools any time throughout the year. Cool off in one of their many outdoor pools or “spraygrounds” for aquatic fun. 

Or take advantage of one of two lakes in the area. You can take a fishing boat for a relaxing day on Lake Michie, catching some of the finest largemouth bass fish in the area.  It offers an ADA accessible boat house, dock, and canoe/kayak launch. Little River Lake has more restrictions, as it is the main water supply for Durham. It is open to the public in a limited capacity for bank fishing. 

If you’re a foodie, you’re sure to find eating establishments that meet your satisfaction and tastes. Museums, nightlife, cultural activities, and more will occupy your days and nights, whether you live or visit this beautiful city.

Take Advantage of Your Own Backyard in DurhamOutdoor Enjoyment in Durham

If you’re lucky enough to live in Durham, you know that the weather is pleasant year-round. When you aren’t out and about, why not increase your enjoyment of your own outdoor oasis? You can do that with an outdoor enclosure custom-built by RainTight of the Carolinas.

You have three choices of outdoor enclosure, based on your budget, space, and preferences. 

Screen Rooms

Get an extra room outdoors by enclosing your deck, patio or porch. You’ll be able to enjoy the balmy breezes without worrying about rain or insects spoiling the experience. Relax, nap, read, meditate -- all while enjoying the beautiful views of nature.


Put that wasted space beneath your above-ground deck to better use with an underdeck ceiling system. It will keep the area dry so that you can use it for storage, dining, seating, or whatever you choose. 

You can choose to have RainTight of the Carolinas install the system for you, or buy a kit for a DIY project. In either case, you’ll have a dry, cleaner space.

Patio Covers

Do you have a patio that you rarely use because of the blazing sun or chance of rain? We can solve that problem by installing a permanent patio cover over it. You’ll be surprised how much more you use it when it’s dry and shady.
