What to do

Explore Chapel Hill with a walk down Franklin Street and stop at one of its many coffee shops for some Joe and local college chatter. Enjoy the afternoon exploring more than 15,000 exhibits at the Ackland Art Museum. And don’t leave Chapel Hill without a visit to the 60,000-square-foot Southern Season Gourmet Emporium with wall to wall kitchen accessories and gourmet delights. Take in an evening performance at the Playmakers Repertory Company in the intimate Paul Green Theatre or a performance at the newly renovated Memorial Hall at UNC.

Sidetrip: Take a morning to visit the quaint town of nearby Pittsboro. Explore several antique shops, a food co-op housed in an old paper mill, and then take your honey to an old fashion soda shop (S&T’s) and order one milkshake with two straws.
