    Going to the Chapel (Hill)

    East of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina’s hilly Piedmont region, Chapel Hill is a laid-back college town known for its quaint, walkable downtown, local history, and the lively student population around The University of North Carolina at Chapel HIll. Along with Raleigh and Durham, Chapel Hill makes up part of the “research triangle,” so called thanks to the area’s many colleges and universities, and the town hosts an annual fall festival every October. Your Chapel Hill vacation rental will give you easy access to the many shops, restaurants, and live music venues around the downtown area.

    Smells like school spirit in Chapel Hill

    College sports are a local pastime, and, depending on the season, you can catch an intercollegiate football, soccer, or baseball game on campus. But the school’s real claim to fame is their basketball team – the university even has a basketball museum dedicated to Tar Heel memorabilia, including from alumnus Michael Jordan. After the museum, you can grab a bite or hit the shops on Franklin Street, Downtown Chapel Hill’s main thoroughfare. If you’re in the mood for something more outdoorsy, the nearby Duke Forest has more than 7,000 acres of preserved woodland, streams, and fields.

    Chapel Hill – at the center of the university

    Since the university sits square in the center of town, it’s no surprise that many of Chapel Hill’s biggest attractions are near – or on – campus. Case in point: the North Carolina Botanical Garden boasts 900 acres of landscaped gardens and nature preserves, and you can see local flora from throughout the region. Looking for a taste of authentic North Carolina? Then head over to the tree-lined lawn of the Carolina Inn, a redbrick building just off the UNC campus, where you’ll find free live music every week from April to October.

    Chapel Hill weather – take a walk on the mild side

    Chapel Hill has a humid subtropical climate, which means warm weather and plenty of muggy, overcast days all year round. Summers are on the warmer side, with average highs in the upper 80s from June through August. Colder weather patterns in the midwest are blocked by the Appalachian Mountains, so winters are mild, and highs rarely dip below 50ºF in December, January, or February. You’ll find prices for Chapel Hill vacation rentals are usually better during the summer months – they tend be lower any time school’s out of session.

    Chapel Hill – come hills or high water

    Amid the rolling hills of the Piedmont – literally “foothill” – plateau, Chapel Hill lies just east of the Appalachian Mountains. A number of nature preserves in the area offer a glimpse of how the region looked before settlers arrived, and you can spot plenty of beaver, bobcat, and wild turkey in the surrounding woodlands, as well as North Carolina’s state bird, the cardinal. With a Chapel Hill vacation rental, you’ll have one foot in town and the other in the heart of North Carolina’s countless outdoor recreation areas.
