Durham, New Hampshire is the perfect location for those with a true love of nature and the great outdoors. One great place to get a glimpse of this is in the Stolworthy Wildlife Sanctuary! You truly feel at one with nature here!


College Woods is the best area in Durham, NH, located just outside of the University of New Hampshire. Ideal for newbies to the area who're seeking to make a fresh start in life. You can find all kinds of job opportunities here, from part-time retail jobs to clerical office positions. There's an unlimited amount of employment for everybody!


Summertime is my absolute favorite time of year in Durham, it's not too warm and is quite pleasant to experience. I find this a convenient place to live, especially considering all of the public transportation in this area. Weather permitting, I'll take a stroll over to the "Freedom Cafe of Durham" to grab a bite or enjoy a cup of
their world famous coffee. The Durham Public Library is also close by and I usually go there at least twice a week.
