Everyone who lives in or near Chapel Hill, North Carolina recognizes the significance of the saying "Southern Part of Heaven."  Chapel Hill's beautiful scenery mixed with a history worthy of pride (and of course a bit of Southern charm) all combine to create a town deserving of this local term. 

While locals are well aware of Chapel Hill's worth, they aren't the only ones singing its praises. According to the magazine Ideal Living, Chapel Hill is one of twenty booming towns in the South. What makes it even more special is the fact that it's listed among popular cities like Orlando, Florida, Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Nashville, Tennessee. 

Reasons for their including Chapel Hill in this booming southern town category? Chapel Hill is "Charming, stylish and filled with a dizzying array of quality bars, restaurants and nightclubs"; it is home to many with Ph.D.s who have found "work developing breakthrough technology in North Carolina's Research Triangle," and one shouldn't be "surprised to see them mingling with local artists and musicians at one of the local shows or art exhibits." 

One final reason? This beloved city is indeed growing, and growing fast, but its appointed leaders are thinking to the future by planning "low-impact developments and greenways to preserve its natural beauty." In other words, years from now you can expect to see green, not skyscrapers!
