Chapel Hill Franklin Street and Campus Walk

Durham, North Carolina

Chapel Hill Franklin Street and Campus Walk Professional Review and Guide

"Chapel Hill is nicknamed the Southern Part of Heaven, and after taking a short stroll through the charming streets and brick-paved paths of the university campus, you’ll find it easy to understand why. This route explores the leafy streets winding through downtown along the Franklin Street business district. Along the way you will pass historic wooded homesites, weathered stone walls, and the small shops that surround the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The route follows South Columbia Street, passes the charming Carolina Inn, and turns east on Manning Drive, entering the university campus. The route through campus takes you past the main stadium and to the picturesque Morehead-Patterson Bell Tower, constructed of red brick. From here you pass the campus and walk through the main green of the campus, Polk Place, to the town’s old well along East Cameron Avenue, before returning to Franklin Street and back to the visitor center."
