Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina, the flagship campus of the UNC system, the oldest public university in the US, and one of the top schools in the country. While exuding a small town feel, Chapel Hill offers food, fun, and culture the caliber of a big city. Check out this recent New York Times travel piece, 36 Hours in Chapel Hill-Carborro, N.C., for just a taste of what the town has to offer.
