Greensboro is also a similar, and fun, trip on Amtrak. Maybe Greensboro doesn’t have quite the same growing national reputation as Durham but it is great for a change of pace. The train station is right in the center of town and there are plenty of restaurants and such within easy walking distance.

Charlotte, of course, would be a great trip too – if the train station weren’t so far from everything you’d want to do in Charlotte (basically, you have no choice but to use a bus, cab, or Uber)

If this were not a trip worth doing, I wouldn’t have written long form on it, obviously.

Maybe just get off at the Cary stop on your next “adventure”. Cary seems more your speed. Bring pepper spray, just in case.
