Chapel Hill Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 18 photos
Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina and its famous alumni including Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, Andrew Jackson. Two hours from surf and three hours from snow, Chapel Hill is a great stop in small town America, with a beautiful university campus and charming southern hospitality.
Springtime means two things in Chapel Hill: Basketball and Flowers! During March Madness, hundreds of colleges compete for rank, culminating in the National Basketball Championship in April. On April 6 of this year, the TAR HEELS WON!
To celebrate 45,000 people flocked to Franklin Street to mingle, chat and generally shout and cheer.
And the flowers.... The dogwoods are in blossom, the cardinals are out in full red plumage, and tiny chipmunks frolic around campus. Even the agricultural pests are breathtaking, like this wysteria
So go outside! Have a picnic on the quad, throw some frisbee, sample ice cream on Franklin Street. Just be careful where you sit down, the honeybees are also out and about!
- Pros:Cozy University Town, Famous College Sports, Vintage 1800 architecture, Free public transportation
- Cons:No Parking on Campus, Everpresent construction
- In a nutshell:A great off the beaten track intro to small town university life
