This area in Durham, NC has lots to do, for college age and above age adults, with restaurants, bars and grills, shopping (from groceries to Duke Athletics apparel). They have some on street parking and some paid parking lot space.

This is great for Duke students, family as well as local residents. Service is great and food excellent. I really love their breakfasts and coffee.

Such a cute fun street to shop on! Great restaurants too! I also use a hair salon on this street and a mail/packing shop. Everything you need is on 9th street!

Great shops, restaurants and young vibe. Would love to explore more of their hangouts/pubs when I am in town again. They looked fun!

Some good restaurants and local shops. In danger of being taken over by chains, with rents rising in the area. Don't miss Vaguely Reminiscent gift shop and The Regulator book store. Whole Foods is nearby, too.

Every Friday night, people just flock there using up all parking lots. It's common driving around for half an hour just to find a parking spot.

Ninth street has such an eclectic mix of restaurants, stores, and activities. I love starting at one end and visiting the storefronts, bookstores, coffee shops, and restaurants. It can keep me entertained for hours. It's a "must-see" Durham activity.

All the quaint small, locally-based shops gave the area a unique feel. I would definitely take anyone visiting from out of town here for Sunday brunch.
