Chapel Hill is the quintessential college town with Southern hospitality. As the home of the UNC Tar Heels, Carolina blue is visible just about everywhere you turn - and wearing Duke blue is not highly recommended. The town's economy revolves around the university and UNC Hospitals, and the social center is Franklin Street.
When staying in Chapel Hill, we recommend the Carolina Inn, the Franklin Hotel, or Aloft. If you have any free time, or are looking for a place to grab a bite, Top of the Hill on Franklin Street is legendary, as are Mama Dip's and Merritt's Grill. If the UNC Men's Basketball team is in town and you think you might want to catch the game, we just have two words to say: Good luck. Tickets are almost impossible to come by. But, you never know!
