What travelers to Chapel Hill are saying

I lived in there from 1971 to 1987 and always enjoy returning. While the small town feel is largely gone, it's still walkable with good parking and a variety of interesting restaurants- just about any cuisine you would want. We always visit The Bookshop (Franklin Street) for a huge selection of used and some rare books and they'll ship them home for you at cost. The students call this the "cat bookshop" for the two resident cats, adopted from a shelter years ago. The local craft and jewelry shops are great. We had an excellent brunch at 411 Franklin. We were there during the ACC basketball tournament and it was fun to see all of the students and other fans in full Carolina blue streaming toward the sports bars to watch the games. If you visit in early December, don't miss the tour of homes decorated for Yule in the historic area. It's also great for pulled pork barbeque- our favorite is Allen and Sons on highway 15-501 between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. That's often our first destination when we land at RDU.

Chapel Hill was a very fun little town! It looked absolutely gorgeous in the fall which made driving around town very entertaining! Plenty of restaurants to choose from!
