The Spa at Fearrington is situated in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, which means major universities, museums and live concerts and shows are close by. In Durham, a 40-minute drive away, you can stroll around Duke University, visit the Sarah P. Duke gardens and take in a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center. Raleigh, located 38 miles from Fearrington Village, boasts world-class museums like the recently renovated North Carolina Museum of Art, where you’ll find more than 30 Rodin sculptures and major European paintings from the 12th through the 19th centuries. Or if you’re a Tarheel fan, you can head to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (about a 20-minute drive) to see the oldest public university in the United States. The Morehead Planetarium & Science Center, one of the largest planetariums in the U.S., is also located in Chapel Hill.
