All About

Living in Carrboro, NC

The progressive and diverse community of Carrboro is the pride of local apartment residents and a popular place for visitors from all around the Durham area to enjoy a weekend afternoon.

Carrboro's cultural diversity is renowned in the area, earning it the nickname "The Paris of Piedmont." Food plays an important role in Carrboro's culture, and aside from a handful of local Latino tiendas offering diverse Hispanic tastes, apartment residents in the city can sample the flavors at the nationally regarded Carrboro Farmer's Market. The event has been held since the 1970s and was one of the first to link local home and apartment residents with the beneficial goods being produced by farmers native to Carrboro and the Durham region.

The annual Carrboro Music Festival also brings out huge crowds of local apartment residents and visitors from around the area to listen to local musicians, while the West End Poetry Festival represents one of the premier artistic events in the state. All year long, the Carrboro ArtsCenter hosts classes for local home and apartment residents while featuring performances from national and internationally known acts. A handful of other venues, including the Reservoir, Open Eye Cafe and the Cat's Cradle, are also popular musical haunts for Carrboro apartment renters.

Those renting Carrboro apartments also enjoy the city's bounty of recreational opportunities, offered through ten community parks, which include lighted ballfields, numerous walking trails and even an urban forest.
