Moving to Chapel Hill? Planning a visit? Look no further than the Visitors & Relocation Guide 2013, which is filled with helpful resources -- from school info to neighborhood profiles to an ultimate Chapel Hill checklist.
Here at Chapel Hill Magazine, our job is to put out a magazine aimed specifically at the residents of Orange and Chatham counties who are already familiar with this area. But once a year we also partner with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce to produce a guide just for visitors and relocators, 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 relocaters 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 2013 guide from CHM 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.
