Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, the largest municipality in Orange County, has been referred to as the "Southern Part of Heaven". It can best be summarized as having the best small town living in a unique cosmopolitan environment.

Chapel Hill offers quality of life that includes small town friendliness; a sense of place and community; rich history and traditions; and the youthful exuberance and interchange of ideas fostered by the University.

There are also a number of very tangible assets, such as good schools and neighborhoods; a healthy downtown; a beautiful natural setting with trees, green spaces and a rural buffer; and other evidence of care for the natural and the man-made environments. Chapel Hill frequently receives accolades for being a top location to live, to visit, and to do business.

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School System is considered to be one of the best in the nation. Consistently ranking at the top of the state in student test, the System also boasts the lowest dropout rate in the state. The system consists of 16 schools: 9 elementary, 4 middle, 2 high schools and the UNC Hospital School.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to nurturing positive relationships with the local community. Their goal is to promote open communication and dialogue and foster understanding about the University, its mission and the needs and interests of its neighbors.

Shopping in Chapell Hill features many casual and fine dining establishments, stores, boutiques, memorabilia shops, and nighttime entertainment options. Numerous buildings feature murals on various subjects by local artist Michael Brown. In 1997, Sports Illustrated called Chapel Hill "the best college town in America". You have so many shopping centers to choose from so be sure to wear your comfortable shoes.

The arts abound in Chapel Hill, a community that values the ways that art and culture enriches our lives, helps define the unique and special qualities of our town, and teaches us about each other.

Chapel Hill has a multitude of restaurants, taverns, clubs and theaters. Different eating places throughout town are like hidden jewels, reflecting the different moods, cultures and flavors of our area.

Chapel Hill also offers a variety of recreational activities to be enjoyed by everyone. From community centers to bike rides, we have it all!
