ROOTS - What you put down when you know you're right where you belong.

Ask anyone who lives in the Chapel Hill, Carrboro or Durham area what they enjoy most and you will get a wide variety of answers. There is a lot to enjoy in this beautiful region, and it is no surprise to residents when we see our area ranked among the nation’s best in overall quality of life. Many years we’ve ranked #1 in the nation.

There is also the flexibility of living just three hours away from both the Blue Ridge Mountains and the famous North Carolina Outer Banks. The Triangle region offers a lifestyle rich in history – with many historical residential areas to match. From the college town atmosphere of UNC, the nation’s first chartered public university (1789) to the rolling hills, cooled lakes and fast-moving rivers that are a mark of our area, there's plenty to keep you busy and happy, right here at home!

Top Ten Cities to "Have it All”

and Money magazine rated the town as the #1

"Best Place to Live in the South"

As one of the three “points” of The Research Triangle, Chapel Hill, along with Raleigh and Durham, continually receives accolades for being a top location to live and do business.

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School System is considered to be one of the best in the nation, consistently ranking at the very top of the state in student test scores.

For sports enthusiasts, this is the #1 spot in the world for college basketball. The University of North Carolina men's basketball team has won five NCAA national championships. Not to be completely outdone, Duke University down the road has won four national basketball championships. And NC State, just a half hour away in Raleigh has won two as well – including their highly memorable 1983 run through the tournament under Coach Jim Valvano.

For Hockey Fans, visit RBC Center in Raleigh to see the 2006 Stanley Cup Champions Carolina Hurricanes play before a raucous fan-base consisting of Southerners who have learned to love the game, and more than just a few transplanted Northerners!
