Have a great trip!

The West Campus (where Cameron is located) is worth walking around, and there are your typical college-type food places there. The Hall of Fame next to Cameron is now complete (I think -- y'all in Dur'm can confirm or deny) which has lots of cool hardware.

I haven't been to many places, but the Duke experience capped by Cameron is unparalleled.

Mad Hatter bakeshop to start the day.

Or, waffle house.

Cosmic Cantina (1920 Perry Street) was one of JJ's haunts (before he saw the light):

It's hard to know where to stop.

DUKE! Durham! Delightful!

You're in for a real treat!

The previous suggestions are excellent. On that walk around West Campus, make sure you step inside the Chapel... truly an awe inspiring structure. In addition to Mad Hatters fabulous treats, I like the pizza at Satisfaction in Brightleaf Square or the comfort food at Elmo's on 9Th St., and nothing beats the fine dining at Magnolia Grill on 9th St. (pricey, but if you have the $ to spare, well worth it!) Durham is quite the foodie town, so the dining choices are varied & numerous.

Actually, Durham Magazine: http://www.durhammag.com/, is a pretty good source for Durham activities, as is the Durham C&VB: http://www.durham-nc.com/.

Enjoy!

When you go to the Chapel, be sure to walk forward at least half way and then look back at the B. N. Duke Flentrop Organ (http://www.chapel.duke.edu/organs/flentrop.html). Flentrop is, probably, the premier organ builder (http://www.flentrop.nl/ukhistory.html) in the world. If you ever have the chance, attend a recital. 5,000+ pipes allow for incredible sound.
