Chapel Hill, NC - "A Southern Part of Heaven"

Chapel Hill is a community where a diversity of ideas, people, and opportunities converge. It is a place where its citizens feel a vitality and pride that stem from Chapel Hill's history, traditions, and unique characteristics.

Home to the nation’s first State University, Chapel Hill is a “melting pot” community of students, educators, and business professionals. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), authorized by the state constitution in 1776, was chartered in 1789, and opened its doors on January 15, 1795.

Today the campus is the center of the community. Students, residents, and visitors all love the historic University-lined Franklin Street for shopping, dining, or just a stroll.

With vivid spring floral displays of color, the easy rolling dogwood and azalea-studded city looks every bit of heaven when in bloom. In the fall, the rich gold and brown of falling leaves decorate the campus walkways.

Both the town and the university provide a wide range of entertainment and cultural activities from National Championship Men’s College Basketball to the dramatic arts to music. With more than 43,000 residents, it is a place of relaxed sophistication.
