Live, Work, and Play in Chapel Hill

Check out Chapel Hill

Home of splurge-worthy retail destinations, the prestigious campus of UNC-Chapel Hill, and enough culinary options to craft your own month-long food tour, Chapel Hill truly has a little something for everyone. Affectionately known as a college town, Chapel Hill is centered around UNC-Chapel Hill's campus, where you can find illustrious landmarks, such as the Bell Tower and Old Well. If you really want to immerse yourself in the college-town culture, then you have to rush Franklin Street with the masses to celebrate a Tar Heels basketball win! 

While you're on Franklin Street, take some time to explore all that downtown Chapel Hill has to offer, including more than 200 restaurants, bars, and shops. Plus, you can head south to experience the outdoor concerts and movie nights at Southern Village. Blue's on Franklin and Top of the Hill, along with a host of other eateries, easily explain why Chapel Hill was dubbed "America's Foodiest Small Town" by Bon Appetit magazine. 

Come explore Carrboro 

Let us start by saying, you can find most of Carrboro's most cherished gems along its Main Street thoroughfare. Home to Carrboro's historic downtown district, East Main Street is a reflection of both the town's prized past and how far it has to come since then. When strolling along Main Street, make sure to pop in Honeysuckle Café & Bar for a quick energy boost and the Carrboro Farmers Market for the freshest produce around. 

Art loves rejoice in Carrboro, where the town holds art walks on the second Friday of each month. Pretty much your personal art trail, you can attend the art walks to explore the town's many museums and art galleries. And if you really want to get a taste of this funky town, you can traverse the two-mile Cider Trail of the area's six most distinct craft breweries. 

Play in Pittsboro 

Encompassing more than 700 square miles of breathtaking nature trails and rolling farmlands, Pittsboro is essentially a playground in and of itself. Here, there are rows of crops farther than the eye can see and plenty of farmers to thank. There are about 1,100 farms in Chatham County, which distribute their fresh products to Pittsboro's farm-to-table restaurants and weekly farmers markets.  

To fill any day with adventure, Pittsboro locals love to make the short drive to Jordan Lake State Park. The state park features seven swim beaches, plus there are nearly 14 miles of hiking trails wrapped around the lakeshore. And if you want to extend your day adventure into the night, you can pitch a tent at one of the recreation area's 1,000-plus campsites.
