Moving to Chapel Hill?

In the Current Issue: Annual Vistors and Relocation Guide from Andrea Griffith on Vimeo.

Whether you're thinking about putting down roots in Chapel Hill or just visiting for the weekend, pick up a copy of the Visitors & Relocation Guide 2014, which is filled with helpful resources – from school info to neighborhood profiles to an ultimate Chapel Hill checklist. (We also encourage visitors to check out the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau – with information and statistics, a daily calendar of events and tons of itinerary suggestions, it is an invaluable source in planning your stay.)

Here at Chapel Hill Magazine, our job is to put out a magazine aimed specifically at the residents of Orange and Chatham counties. But once a year we also partner with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce to produce a guide just for visitors and folks who are new to the area, and we have so much fun introducing these readers to all the wonderful things about our towns.

This year's guide provides readers with everything there is to know about living here, from our neighborhoods, schools and retirement centers to our dining and entertainment scenes. Visitors can flip through the pages for ideas of what to see and do while they're here, and relocators can use this publication's directories, maps and pages of important phone numbers to make the transition to their new home a breeze.

Click on the video above to learn more about the 2014 guide from Editorial Director Andrea Griffith Cash. Then purchase a copy for just $6 by calling (919) 933-1551, or stop by our office at 190 Finley Golf Course Rd. in Chapel Hill.

Welcome to Chapel Hill! We hope you enjoy it here.

With public schools about to resume, the eighth annual East Chapel Hill Rotary Teacher Supply Store at the American Legion Hut opened for business on August 20. In all, 440 teachers were given a $75 voucher to shop for classroom supplies. Brian Mason of Northside Elementary and Craig Walker of Rashkis Elementary are super excited about their new pencil sharpeners!
