Often referred to as "the southern part of heaven," Chapel Hill is most known for its small-town charm with a cosmopolitan cultural climate.
We are centrally located less than three hours from the North Carolina beaches and three hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains. The area offers rolling hills, lush greenery and a mild climate with four distinct seasons.
As one of the three “points” of The Research Triangle, Chapel Hill, along with Raleigh and Durham, is also a hub of global research and development. Venues such as the UNC Memorial Hall, Durham Performing Arts Center and Duke Energy Performing Arts Center bring world-class entertainment directly to the Triangle communities. In recent years, the art and food scene has grown significantly. Foodies will also find fresh farmers markets, farm-to-table dining and a multitude of food-inspired festivals.
