314 Ransom Street, Chapel Hill,
The University of North Carolina is the reason there is a Chapel Hill. This was just a spot on a map in the middle of the woods by a spring that someone decided in the 1700's would make a great place for a University. The land around it was auctioned off as depicted in the mural in the downtown post office and thus Chapel Hill was born. UNC was meant as a school for the people, and the campus and the town were built from scratch. They have both grown. UNC is still one of the most respected Universities in the country with over 20,000 students and Chapel Hill is one of the most progressive towns in the south, if not THE most progressive town in the south.
Downtown Chapel Hill by day is a parade of mostly undergrads or UNC professors on their way to work, or to eat or to shop. By night it is a parade of young people on their way to party at the large number of bars, clubs, pool-halls, restaurants and cafes on the 100 block.
West Franklin is where the older people go and it has become a foodie heaven with many wonderful restaurants. Crooks Corner has been serving Southern gourmet food since Bill Neil and Gene Hammer opened it twenty years ago. Elaine's is the kind of place that when customers leave after a meal they want to grab strangers on the street and take them in to experience it for themselves. And we must not overlook The Lantern and award winning restaurant many times over, including the James Beard award for Best Chef in the Southeast for owner and Chef, Andrea Reusing. In addition, there's West End Wine Bar, music venues and other restaurants. And opening this Summer is TOPO, Chapel Hill's very own distillery!
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We have a local bookstore, Flyleaf Books, that's thriving despite Amazon, Kindle's and Nooks. Local restaurants, local clothing stores, local hardware store, locally owned movie theatre, locally owned hotels - this town is a haven for localvores.
