About Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, North Carolina: The Southern Part of Heaven
Rooted in the traditions and charm of the south, Chapel Hill is home to rich history and exuberance of life. With its own culture, arts and recreational activities, the University of North Carolina is proud to call Chapel Hill home.
As the oldest state-supported university in the United States, UNC Chapel Hill has helped shape the town into what it has become today. This university town is part of a rich food and wine scene with numerous cultural attractions featuring fine shopping boutiques, art museums and local dining establishments.
Chapel Hill is part of Durham, Orange and Chatham counties, and serves as one of the corners to the Research Triangle Park. Durham and Raleigh connect the triangle which lends its name to this highly respected and widespread Research Triangle Park (RTP) near our downtown Chapel Hill hotel.
