Chapel Hill is a college town. For example, the bus system is free to all riders, but barely runs when school is not in session. When a school team wins a game, the main drag is completely impassable with people partying. In summer, the town is completely different. Chapel Hill is also a liberal oasis in a red state.

I definitely see myself staying here in this beautiful town. The community is always very welcoming, open-minded, and culturally diverse. This area is very clean and safe, which is why I believe it is better than other cities in the country. Although it may get boring at times because there is nothing to do, the town is still amazing and contains vibrant individuals who make this town very unique.
Nice area, starting to become too built up. There are lots of indoor and outdoor options and close to a ton of jobs in Raleigh.
