There is nothing like gorgeous Spring weather to bring us out of our Winter hibernation - especially during these pandemic times when so much time has been spent at home. Lucky for you, whether you live in Chapel Hill or are looking to buy a home here, you have the whole city and surrounding boroughs as your playground - and many can be done while distancing, shall distancing orders still be in place. 

Take advantage of all that this beloved college town has to offer all its residents and visitors by checking out our top recommended activities to entertain and delight you on a sunny Spring day!

 Hit the Streets

For shopping in little boutiques and getting a taste of local cuisine, find your way to Franklin Street. There you’ll find a mix of students and full-time residents strolling, grabbing coffee at numerous cafes, dining at the local restaurants and window shopping.

 Try Something New

Chapel Hill is proud of its diversity, and every spring, they celebrate it with the Near & Far Festival. This annual event offers attendees live music, dancing and food from the global community to expand your palate and your horizons.

 Storm the Castle

Gimghoul Castle is not for everyone, but if you appreciate a ghost story, you may want to give it a go. This unusual stone structure dates back to the 1920s, and legend has it that it’s haunted. Visit in spring when the spooky vibe may not be quite as intimidating.

 Stroll the Gardens

Chapel Hill boasts not one but two impressive gardens, the NC Botanical Gardens and Coker Arboretum. With hundreds of plants and many flowers in bloom, either site is a gardener’s paradise.

 Do a Pub Crawl

Did you know that April is NC Beer Month? Raise a glass to the end of Winter when you hit the local breweries and sample their artfully crafted beverages.

 Catch a Game

Chapel Hill is a basketball town, as you can see when you tour the Dean E. Smith Center and Carolina Basketball Museum. If the season has ended, you may want to catch a UNC soccer or baseball game and root for the Tar Heels!

 Get Some Culture

Highbrow it with a visit to Ackland Art Museum on the UNC campus, which has over 17,000 works in its collection. Another local favorite, especially with the kids, is Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.

 Take a Tour

A self-guided tour through Chapel Hill and Carrboro to see the over 30 murals is, frankly, one of the easiest ways to spend a sunny afternoon.
