Taking a minute to inhale the clean air at Forest Hills Park is the perfect way to ease your harried nerves.
To experience it firsthand, you'll need to travel to Raleigh, the state capital.
If you're hunting for your hotel, you'll be able to take your pick from 7 candidates that are all within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Forest Hills Park. Many visitors appreciate The King's Daughters Inn, Durham Marriott City Center and Hilton Garden Inn Durham/University Medical Center, 2 miles (3 kilometers), 1 mile (2 kilometers) and 2 miles (3 kilometers) away, respectively.
You won't need to max out your credit card if you stay at a cheap, yet comfortable hotel. There is a handful that are just a short drive away. Two of your options are the University Inn Durham next to Duke University Medical Center and the Extended Stay America - Durham - University - Ivy Creek Blvd.
If elegance appeals to you, don't miss spending one or two nights at one of the handful of lavish hotels that are a stone's throw away. The Durham Hotel is 1 mile (2 kilometers) away, or the 21c Museum Hotel Durham is a meager 1 mile (2 kilometers) away, and they are both outstanding choices.
Say goodbye to a lively afternoon of exploring and indulge in some fine fare at Capital Seafood Market (1304 University Drive, Durham). Just 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) away, Bull City Cigar Co (1214 University Drive, Durham) happily welcomes travelers in need of a cool one.
