A trip to one of my favorite places in the world…Chapel Hill, NC!
I made a trip to Chapel Hill recently…here are some of my favorite places to go in the "Southern Part of Heaven." It doesn't get much prettier or fun than Chapel Hill. The town has so much to do and see, and the university is gorgeous. I had a blast visiting my sweet alma mater and getting to see some friends. If you're ever in the area, here are some great places to visit!
The Old Well
If you have a chance to see this beauty in the spring, all the azaleas are in bloom and it is the prettiest!
The Dean Dome (Dean E. Smith Center)
This place is magical. If you're a Carolina basketball fan, you know how awesome of an atmosphere this is. It's definitely one of my favorite places on campus. These are also quite a beautiful sight...
Maple View Farm
This is an awesome farm and homemade ice cream shop in Hillsborough, NC, just outside of Chapel Hill. It is such a fun place to go…their ice cream is so good and you can sit on the front porch rocking chairs and look out at the pretty fields!
Here is Maple View's website!
The Bell Tower
This is another beautiful campus landmark, right near Kenan Stadium. My name is on a brick somewhere up inside that tower :)
The Carolina Inn
This is a historic, pretty hotel on campus. It also has a great restaurant. If you don't stay there, drive by to look at it! Find them online here.
Sutton's Drug Store
Sutton's is one of my favorite lunch places on Franklin Street. A former pharmacy, it has awesome food and is such a fun atmosphere. It has so much history too…established in 1923! Find them online here.
UNC Quad/South Building
This is just another one of the beautiful places on campus!
