Grab your bags, exit the gates of Durham Airport (MME-Teesside Intl.), and pick up your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you want to go. If you’ll be primarily driving in downtown Darlington, around 5 miles from the terminal, opt for something zippy and small. A compact car with nimble handling will be perfect for navigating those busy city streets. But with so many things to see, like the beautiful rocky coastlines of the surrounding region, you’ll probably be racking up a few miles. A larger vehicle, like an SUV or a full-size car, will make longer road trips a joy.
