Reproduction of a historic Durham NC sign saying: Progress. Durham Renowned the world around. Success.

If you asked me to sum up Durham in one pic­ture, this would be it. A catchy mot­to, a hint of charm, and a beau­ti­ful brick-and-paint­brush­es appre­ci­a­tion of the past, all while eager­ly pur­su­ing the future.

It also looks real­ly cool.

To see this mur­al in real life, vis­it The Streets at South­point on Fayet­teville Rd. They have a won­der­ful col­lec­tions of vin­tage-style murals that you can appre­ci­ate while wait­ing for a movie or grab­bing a bite.

Or, you know, buy­ing things, ‘cause appar­ent­ly that’s what you’re sup­posed to do at malls. (I learn some­thing new every day.)


Dia of Shoe­string Adven­tur­ing here, ambush­ing your dash for a moment of city pride.

SW Durham, The Streets at South­point
