“My favorite place in the world!”
Review of Franklin Street

Franklin Street
Ranked #3 of 46 things to do in Chapel Hill
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Chapel Hill is just a special place. Between the restaurants, the shopping, the atmosphere, and the fellow Tar Heels, it is a place that has made me feel welcome and at home for over 35 years. There is no place I'd rather be. From Top of the Hill, Ye Olde Waffle Shoppe, Spanky's, Four Corners, or Vespa, Crooks or 411, there are so many great places to satisfy your taste buds! And you never know who you will run into - many famous alumni are always back because we are all part of the Tar Heel family :)

Franklin street from one end to the end other represents Tar-heel country ,local restaurants local boutiques , Local bars taverns all competing for that almighty Carolina Tar Heel dollar, During game days can be very crowded especially football and basketball game days , If you're planning a trip during one of the football or Basketball game days, parking is difficult at times, Come early.....

Franklin street in my opinion is a wonderful place to go walking or grab a bite. There is so much to do it has it all. There is a nice restaurant called Med Deli. There is a great pizza joint near by called the Mellow Mushroom I cannot tell you how may awards some of the places in Franklin Street. And I hope what i told you was good advice.

Franklin Street is ever changing. Enjoy the university hangouts and food. Take a bench and watch the students parade by, go to Top of the Hill and sit outside for a birds eye view, and head west for many more good restaurants. Head east for the planetarium and the fabulous rose garden. Site an NBA star or a budding musician. Franklin Street is still the heart of Chapel Hill.

You can't come to Chapel Hill without experiencing Franklin Street. There are so many 4 to 5 star restaurants with 2-3 star prices, boutiques, salons and a vintage movie theater! What's not to like!!!!
