Things to Do in Chapel Hill, NC


Chapel Hill has a diverse array of restaurants that every foodie will love. You can start your day off with a coffee and fresh pastry at Perennial or at Bread & Butter with fresh-baked breads, both located downtown. For great sushi or other Asian-style food, Elements is the place to be. Not only is their food locally-sourced when possible from farms in the area, they also have multiple awards including the Opentable Diners’ Choice Award, Best of Chapel Hill, Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, and more.
