Compare Chapel Hill to Top 10 Best Places
Chapel Hill is home to a little school you may have heard of (hint: it's the oldest public university in the country). But even if you're past your dorm days, the town has plenty to offer.
Arts and entertainment are a significant part of life here. There are two museums, a historic planetarium, a botanical garden and dozens of pubs and concert venues in the town's 20 square miles to keep your senses stimulated and your heart content.
UNC's reputation has trickled down to the public school district, where East Chapel Hill High is consistently ranked as one of the nation's best high schools. What's more, the town's relatively low tax rates mean your hard-earned dollars will go far.
