Pedestrian friendly place that offers wonderful, some unusual shops. Great place to polk around and maybe find that special gift and grab a bite to eat.

A tobacco warehouse turned into restaurant row. Shop for antiques, jewelry, gifts and art. All kinds of restaurants.

You'll find a variety of restaurants with indoor and outside seating. There are boutiques and a very pretty walkway right down the center of Brightleaf. Holiday lights are pretty too.

We stopped in and walk around for a bit. With kids, we hit the bathroom! Love this area. We would have loved to see it at night all lit up with the lights in the trees and above the walkways. Some great shops and restaurants...More

Have been to a few restaurants here and what I like is that they aren't chains. They are local spots. Also, a couple cool shops to check out. Cool little spot in Durham.

This converted tobacco warehouse has changed a lot over the years. Many businesses have come and gone but overwhelmingly they are local enterprises and not big chains (okay, maybe some of the eateries are part of local chains). They even have free concerts on Fridays...More

This makes for a great afternoon in Durham for a relaxing stroll and a cold beer or lunch. The shops are specialty and upscale. We enjoyed the historical tobacco warehouse buildings.

Enjoyed a fun dinner of pizza here in the Square with my daughter and her roommate. Would definitely recommend their food and the atmosphere is classic brick building/modern.
