Chapel Hill is not your typical college town. Chapel Hill is home to the renown University of North Carolina (which happens to be the oldest public university in the United States), which brings the entire community together over college basketball, football, and other sports.
But beyond the athletics and campus life, Chapel Hill is an inviting suburb with parks and green space, beautiful homes, community-centered events, and a strong local economy. Plus, its location on I-40 makes the town convenient to Downtown Raleigh and Research Triangle Park. What's not to love?
