Chapel Hill

A quintessential college town, Chapel Hill features a historic foundation and a small-town feel. Locals know Chapel Hill as the "Southern Part of Heaven."

Key Features

The University of North Carolina: Physically situated on a high point within the town (the top of the hill), Chapel Hill also strives to be top of the class as well. The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is the academic heartbeat of the town.

Historic Neighborhoods: Traditional Southern architecture sets the tone within the three local historic districts of Franklin-Rosemary, Cameron-McCauley, and Gimghoul, with homes dating back to the 1800s. Front porches and tree-lined streets call to buyers looking for homes with classic character.

Franklin Street

Named after Ben Franklin, Franklin Street is a classic main street. It's five blocks filled with watering holes, bookstores, and shopping that draw locals and students alike. More than 50,000 students will pour into this well-loved district for Halloween or after a big March Madness win.

The Carolina Inn

An elegant, historic hotel originally modeled after George Washington's Mount Vernon and known for its afternoon tea, weddings, and Fridays on the Front Porch. Built in 1924 by famous UNC alumnus John Sprunt Hill and gifted to UNC in the 1930s, it supports the University's library to this day.


Craving seafood? Squid's has been serving the locals fresh catches for 30 years. Pull up a bar stool, order a dozen oysters, and ask the bartender for a local craft brew.
