This is a pretty campus, residential in places, and has a classy old style vibe. The grounds are well maintained, and plenty of botanic gardens. Don't even try to drive, though, just park and walk.

If you come to Chapel Hill, you MUST visit the UNC campus. If it didn't exist, there'd be no Chapel Hill. UNC is America's oldest public university and has a reputation that continues to soar.

You'll enjoy any tour but it's beautiful and cool in the fall. Eat lunch or dinner at The Carolina Inn or go to Franklin Street and stop into the Carolina Coffee Shop.
