by Masha Halpern

The community of Chapel Hill is a wonderful place to work and live life to the fullest - any resident or business owner/worker can attest to that. But they're not the only ones singing Chapel Hill's praises, and singing them loudly. In the year 2014, Chapel Hill was the recipient of multiple accolades.

Here's just a few from the long list:

  • Best Small Cities for Education, as well as Most Exciting Places in NC and #3 Most Caring Small Cities in America by Movoto.com
  • One of the Best Places to Live by MONEY Magazine
  • Top Cities for Music That Aren't New York or L.A. by mic.com
  • Best College Cities or Towns in America by WalletHub

  • #8 Most Educated Places in America by NerdWallet
  • #10 America's Best Town for July 4th by Travel + Leisure
  • #18 Best Midsized Cities for Job Growth by NewGeography.com

With accolades such as these, it's no wonder Chapel Hill has been pegged The Southern Part of Heaven!

Take a Look at the Artsy Side of Durham!

by LC for Masha Halpern

 

On the third Friday of every month, Durham welcomes all to enjoy an event that has become a celebration of art among locals.  Various art venues across the Bull City open their doors to the public between 6:00 and 9:00 PM - all so you and I can freely delight in the wonderment of current exhibitions and grand openings!

Venues generally change from month to month, though a few grace the Third Friday event as "regulars." Several of these venues provide complimentary drinks and snacks for visitors to partake in as they admire the art before them and talk face-to-face with the artists. Third Friday now even offers the serenade of local musicians as they entertain near many of the venue sites!

This Friday, July 17 is the next Third Friday Durham, and it is one not to be missed. See the map below to plot your excursion through Durham's art scene!

Click here to view Third Friday Durham's Facebook page.

If you're interested in knowing a little more about the great city of Durham, and are possibly considering buying a home here in the near future, contact us today and we would be happy to help turn your home-buying dreams into reality!
