“College revisited”
Review of Franklin Street

Franklin Street
Ranked #3 of 46 things to do in Chapel Hill
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 16, 2012

UNC is, of course, known for its excellence - but Franklin Street is probably the most remembered in the minds of former students. Its only the center of activity during "down time" and has something for everyone.

First of all, I must mention that I went to school here, so I am not a first-timer. There are a lot of fun shops, restaurants, and stores to choose from. Take your time and be sure to check things out.

Franklin Street was buzzing on a chilly Friday evening. We had just arrived in town, and hadn't made a restaurant booking. Were a little discouraged to see that many of them were already full - always a good sign though for quality of food :)

So much to choose from, and so little time! It has the best weather all year long, the restaurants are world class, price is right just about everywhere, and the sidewalks work for halloween parades, college championships, music banners, dogs, flowers, drug stores, pizza and Thai shops, endless array of storefronts.
