Durham has been a great place to live for the past 5 years. There are two clear sections to it from my perspective, downtown and mid-burbs. Downtown you can walk to everything and they are building it up like crazy. The mid-burbs are still part of Durham, feel like the suburbs, not walking friendly, but safer and more kid friendly. You can always park wherever you drive, so it's more of a lifestyle choice than anything else.
