Actress Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James Blog recently stopped in Durham as part of a Southern college tour. In a Sept. 11 blog post, the blog listed a few reasons to enjoy Durham.

Avery Carmichael of Indagare, a luxury travel company, offered some of her favorite picks of Durham attractions, among them 21C Museum Hotel, Mateo tapas restaurant, Foster’s Market, Juju and Nana’s.

The Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau, which markets Durham, cited the post in an online newsletter.

Witherspoon says the Draper James Blog “is my little slice of space to share the things I love most about life in the South: the people, the parties, the food and the fun!” Draper James is Witherspoon’s line of clothing, handbags and home accessories.

Witherspoon’s many films include “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Walk the Line” and “Legally Blonde.” She also was part of the mini-series “Big Little Lies,” which won an Emmy Sunday.
