What Bert Has To Say About Durham-Chapel Hill Metro Area


Previously, the so-called “Durham” metro area was part of the larger Research Triangle triumvirate of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill metro area. Now Raleigh, and the large suburban enclave of Cary, have been split off into a metro area of that name, leaving the western half of the former metro area under the name Durham. The Durham area includes Chapel Hill, so on the surface, the two major cities in the area are both college towns – Durham is home to Duke University, while Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina. But that’s where the similarities end. Durham is an old tobacco town, not too prosperous, not too interesting but livable. Some of the old tobacco processing plants in town add some historic interest.
