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.

If you are anywhere near Chapel Hill, you owe it to yourself to visit the UNC campus and nearby Franklin Street. Be prepared to walk and it is a bit hilly, but the entire campus is truly beautiful.
