VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE 2021

“Sports fans love to go to a game or the Carolina Basketball Museum. I’d go to What are your tried-and-true The Carolina Inn for spots for taking out-of-town tea, shop and eat in visitors? Hillsborough, and enjoy a Southern dinner at Acme in Carrboro, especially on its back patio. I’ll also take them shopping in Pittsboro with a meal at Postal PUBLISHER Fish Company.” Ellen Shannon ellenshannon@chapelhillmagazine.com EXECUTIVE MANAGING EDITOR Amanda MacLaren amanda@durhammag.com

“Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen is always our first stop. Then we might hop over to Caffe Driade for a cold brew to take on a walk down Franklin Street and across UNC’s campus. We'll stop in at the Ackland Art Museum before having lunch on the patio behind Merritt's Grill. To end the day, we would wander over to The Carolina Inn for live music at Fridays on the Front Porch.”

“I’d have Friday night dinner at Stoney River Steakhouse. On Saturday, we’d enjoy Fearrington Village with a walk in Camden Park, browse the shops, see the baby goats and have lunch outside in the gardens at The Belted Goat. Then we’d head to Chapel Hill for oysters and lobster at Squid's. Sunday would be paddleboarding on Jordan Lake and Southern brunch at Mama Dip's.”

“Start the day at Breakaway for coffee and then take the boat out on Jordan Lake for a swim at the dam and a picnic lunch. Once off the lake, we would head to S&T’s Soda Shoppe for its huge banana split. The next day, we would go to brunch at Small B&B Cafe, hike the CCCC Walking Trail and then head to the Bynum Bridge for a walk across the Haw River and to show guests graffiti by my daughter and others on the colorful historic structure.” “Iced caramel coffees and freshly baked muffins from Cup A Joe are a perfect way to start the day followed by a walk along the river or through historic downtown Hillsborough, stopping in at boutiques for local gifts and souvenirs. Dining options on Churton Street range from comfort food and craft beers on the patio of Radius to Italian-inspired fare at Antonia's to the classic burgers and fries at The Wooden Nickel. Your guests will not be dissapointed!”

I

wasn’t born or bred in Chapel Hill, but first came to love it during college at UNC. I could have stayed in my campus bubble those four years but working for The

Daily Tar Heel student newspaper had me attending school board and town council meetings. I dined at Franklin Street eateries when my budget allowed and watched indie flicks at The Chelsea Theater. After graduation and stints in New York and Alabama, I was lured back to town to work for Chapel Hill Magazine. I always thought I’d end up here, but figured it would be years down the road, to raise a family or to retire. In the end, it was the dynamic cultural scene, the sense of community I’d felt on and beyond campus and the chance to attend more UNC basketball games – Go Heels! – that brought me back. Moving here for the second time back in 2014, I had a slight advantage over the average new resident – I generally knew my way around. But I had to find a gym,

an eye doctor, networking opportunities and so on. This guide was a helpful place to start then just as it is now, and I got to explore parks, art galleries and breweries, marking things off the “Ultimate Checklist” for Orange and Chatham counties. I ventured to historic Hillsborough and charming Pittsboro, attended food festivals and fundraisers and got a Chapel Hill Public Library card, something I highly recommend. Whether you’ve picked up our Visitors and Relocation Guide because you are on a

campus tour with your high schooler or on a business trip or if you’re thinking about moving here, welcome! We hope this guide brings you up to speed on places to go,

ABOUT THIS GUIDE This annual publication is produced by Chapel Hill Magazine and Chatham Magazine in partnership with The Chamber for a Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro, an excellent source for information about starting a business, monthly networking events and more.

events not to miss and the town you might soon be calling home. We hope you love the “Southern part of heaven” as much as we do.

TAR HEELS North Carolina is “The Tar Heel State,” and the nickname has two possible origins. One story is that back during the Revolutionary War, British troops discovered their feet covered with tar. Some say North Carolinians dumped it in the river to slow down the army. Another explanation is that North Carolina soldiers in the Civil War threatened to stick tar on the heels of other states’ retreating soldiers. General Robert E. Lee reportedly praised them, saying, “God bless the Tar Heel boys!”

DAY TRIPS Ideas for spending time in Carrboro, Siler City, Pittsboro and Durham

CARRBORO

PHOTO BY SP MURRAY

A local reveals his favorite food, shopping and fun

Located on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro line at 111 N. Merritt Mill Road, the Elizabeth Cotten mural is part of a statewide project conceived by artist Scott Nurkin, which honors famous North Carolina musicians in their hometowns. Ms. Cotten is renowned for her distinctive musical style, created by playing lefthanded on a right-handed guitar. This mural is a collaboration between Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture, the Town of Carrboro and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership.

tart out with a quintessential Carrboro experience, the Carrboro Farmers Market, which is open every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning. Don’t get there too late though – the fresh organic eggs are gone on Saturday mornings by 9:30 a.m., and the line for the doughnut vendor can get pretty long (she makes tasty muffins and scones, too). Tomato Day [in July] is a must-do, but even if you miss it, fresh tomatoes with real flavor are available through most of the summer. After you’re done at the market, swing by a thrift shop and find some household item or fashion accessory that you didn’t even know you needed.

CommunityWorx is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable folks who will point you in the right direction. For lunch, check out Akai Hana for its bento box specials and

some of the best sushi you’ll find anywhere in the region, or head to chef Gabe Barker’s Pizzeria Mercato, which boasts savory Italian food, a wonderful wine selection and an amazing beet salad. Another great pizza option is Napoli Pizzeria & Gelateria, which has pizza to go and outdoor seating. Try the apricot pizza for something sweet, savory and special, and don’t forget the artisanal gelato for dessert. No trip to the “Paris of the Piedmont,” as Carrboro is known, is complete without browsing the local galleries. Start at The

ArtsCenter, which has two galleries that rotate exhibits every month. Events are subject to change and businesses may be temporarily closed. Check with organizers or businesses prior to visiting.

Also, the back of This & That Gift Gallery has great presents and funny greeting cards. The newest space to join the scene is Galerie

Pied-a-Terre, which features some of the most accomplished artists

Then grab a decadent milkshake at Johnny’s Gone Fishing and check out its upcoming concerts. Speaking of live music, there are lots of venues in Carrboro in addition to the full lineup at The ArtsCenter and Cat’s Cradle. Peruse the schedule at 2nd Wind on

RELAX I find shopping at Letters Bookshop, Parker & Otis, Indio,

Bungalow and Vintage Home South to be incredibly soothing. Same with Durham Bulls games. There’s something so relaxing about the rhythm of baseball. Other ideas: Stroll through Sarah P. Duke Gardens or venture into Duke Chapel to enjoy some of the region’s most contemplative spaces. Book a massage at Massage Envy. Enjoy afternoon tea at the

Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club.

TAKE IN SOME CULTURE Check out the Museum of Durham History. Get a selfie in front of each of Durham’s murals. (You can tour the murals on two wheels via Mural Durham bike tours.) Don’t miss the Nasher Museum of

Art at Duke University. And it’s always fun to see what’s new at the 21c Museum Hotel. WORK UP A SWEAT Run, walk or bike the American Tobacco Trail. Start your Saturdays with Yoga with Kirsten in the taproom at Hi-Wire

Brewing Durham. Hike along the Eno River or put in some miles on the Al Buehler Cross Country Trail in Duke Forest.

INDULGE When planning a staycation menu, start with culinary traditions and flavors you’ve never tried before. Maybe it’s Rose’s Noodles,

Dumplings & Sweets, NanaSteak, Juju, Yamazushi, Toast, La Vaquita Taqueria, Gocciolina or Vin Rouge. Some newer spots on the food scene include Zweli’s Kitchen & Catering, Sister

Liu’s Kitchen or Cucciolo Osteria. Don’t forget the drinks: Pour Taproom, The Wine Feed, Bull City Ciderworks. When mapping two more affordable options.

Hill Town Council member Tai Huynh juggles a lot of responsibilities. In addition to his time on the council, he has to balance the load of a full-time job, serving as CEO of tech startup Acta Solutions, which aims to bring real-time, community-engaged data to local governments. One thing that makes his story unique, however, is that he also just finished college. Tai is a recent graduate from UNC, where he was a Morehead-Cain scholar and majored in computer science with minors in anthropology and business administration. His profile page on the Chapel Hill Town Council website says that he enjoys reading, backpacking and boxing in his downtime, though it’s hard to imagine he has much of that anymore.


BUSINESS RESOURCES

where I was fortunate enough to be elected by our fellow residents. And here we are.

And you won that election by something like 20 votes, correct? Twenty. Four. Votes.

If someone is moving to this area and they know they want to open a business, where do they start? Starting a business takes guts, and your local chamber will be with you every step of the way. From understanding the market and navigating the regulatory environment to recruiting talented employees and attracting customers, The Chamber for a Greater Chapel HillCarrboro is committed to serving and advancing the interests of business and building a sustainable community where business thrives. Drop by our office on Estes Drive just off Franklin Street – we can help you get started.

plan is to continue to work full time on the company and [do] my part-time job with full-time hours on the Town Council.

Tell me about Acta Solutions. Did it start as a company, or was it more the nexus of an idea? Definitely more the nexus of an idea. We were these bright-eyed and bushytailed students who had a desire to improve community interaction with local government by leveraging emerging technology. We had no idea how we were going to do it, but most of us had worked in and around local government. Eventually, after a few pivots, we landed on a social mission of improving equitable engagement. So, it’s meant for the local government to actually interface with their communities using real-time data.

How would you describe the business community in Chapel Hill and Carrboro? While diverse in size and industry, the business community in the Chapel Hill area is best described as thoughtfully engaged. Business leaders are at the table with local government officials and nonprofit leaders, working together to make a positive difference in the lives of our residents. Local businesses and their chamber work together to help [those] businesses succeed today and to help our community thrive over the long run. Together, we work to make Chapel Hill a great place to start a business, raise a family and retire, and there is room at the table for new residents who wish to help drive progress and build community. What kinds of things can The Chamber help with? The Chamber is a membership organization, and there are great benefits to membership. We connect members with the resources they need to thrive, advocate for local business interests, drive progress and build community. As one Chamber member put it, “We do business better because we work together.”

Explain what you mean by “equitable engagement.” Each community has qualityof-life indicators that their community

prioritizes. This can be anything from traffic to green space, walkability, things like that. So the ultimate vision for Acta is to take in public input and bring in data sources that can analyze those factors to give community decision makers a robust, comprehensive analysis of the citizeninformed data.

Explain your role and your day-to-day at Acta. I run the business development, marketing, sales functions, interfacing with the clients – just everything on the business side of things – financial projections, trying to get new clients, working on the vision with our product development side. We’re based out of [local entrepreneurial incubator] Launch Chapel Hill.

Tell me about the name. “Acta” is the Greek root for “engage.” Considering we honed in on the engagement process, it seemed like a natural fit for us. And it sounds cool.

What does the near and distant future look like? We’re in the “MVP” phase right now, bootstrapping our minimum viable product and supplementing our technology with consulting services. We’re in the process of building out our first version of the whole technology. The goal in the near term is to get eight subscription contracts with local governments across the state of North Carolina onto our platform. As we build from there, our goal is to eventually be a software platform that can kind of take over the entire engagement process for local government so that it’s kind of a onestop shop for more equitable engagement. — By Michael Venutolo-Mantovani

LEARN TO LOVE NETWORKING

BUSINESS AFTER HOURS Every third Friday, The Chamber hosts afterwork events at different Chamber member locations for in-person relationship building and networking.

Nora Spencer and her SCORE mentor, Carl Baumann, started meeting in the summer of 2017 after she graduated from UNC with her master’s in social work to help her start her nonprofit, Hope Renovations. “He worked with me to create a thorough 60-page business plan and advised me when I started executing it,” Nora says. “These days when we meet, it’s all about working through startup-related challenges and smart planning for future growth. He helps me with all aspects, from operations and marketing strategy to financials, all from a real-world point of view.”

Overall, the renovation took about a year and a half; the Villards purchased the home in December 2017 and moved in August 2019, just in time to host family for the holidays.

DENTAL ANESTHESIOLOGY

or the 11th straight year, Chapel Hill Magazine commissioned

a peer-to-peer survey of the local dental community – from endodontists to prosthodontists. The following listing is the result. Dentists were asked the telling question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?” The Chapel Hill area is well-served by the dental

community. Hundreds of dentists, specialists and support professionals have made this area home, and the overall quality of dental care in our communities is second to none. What good dentist wouldn’t want to practice here?

A LITTLE BACKGROUND The Top Dentists list for Chapel Hill is the result of a rigorous evaluation process consisting of peer-to-peer surveys of area dentists and professionals. This survey was conducted and managed by the nationally recognized third-party firm topDentists LLC of Augusta, Ga. This list is excerpted from the 2020 topDentists™ list, a database that includes listings for dentists and specialists in the Chapel Hill area. The list is based on detailed evaluations of dentists and professionals by their peers. The complete database is available at usatopdentists.com. topDentists management has more than 60 years combined experience compiling peer-review referral guides in the dental, medical and legal fields. Working from this experience, along with the input of several prominent dentists from throughout the United States, topDentists created a selection process that has earned the respect of the country’s leading dental professionals. For more information, call 706-364-0853; write P.O. Box 970, Augusta, Georgia, 30903; email info@usatopdentists. com or visit usatopdentists.com. The purchase of advertising has no impact on who is included in the Top Dentists list.

Our Mission Saving and protecting wild cats in captivity and in the wild.

Background Carolina Tiger Rescue believes the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild. Unfortunately, thousands of wild cats across the U.S. are bred and sold into private homes, the entertainment industry, and to roadside zoos for the sole purpose of exploitation. In addition to advocating against their exploitation, Carolina Tiger Rescue gives wild cats that have survived these circumstances a second chance at life, providing safe and comfortable homes where they can live in peace.

This Place.

You’ll arrive on Bald Head Island by ferry, then explore by golf cart, bicycle or your own two feet. As your pace slows, you’ll notice little things…a painted bunting flitting through the brush…a ghost crab skittering across the sand…three, no, four dolphins leaping in the surf…and you’ll feel more serene and more alive than you have in a long while. That’s the simple magic of this place, if you’ll allow it.

Howard Lee made history when he was elected mayor of Chapel Hill in 1969. He was the first Black mayor of a predominantly white, Southern town since Reconstruction. One of his main campaign promises was to start a bus system. “We were the first community in the state to create a public transportation system from scratch, which launched in 1974,” he told Chapel Hill Magazine in 2019. “It is now the second most-used bus system in North Carolina.”

Carolina Masters Crew Club attracts rowers of all ages, including Nicole Wiley, who joined in 2016. The team is coached by Lisa Schlenker, former U.S. Rowing Olympian, at the Michael Nicholls Boathouse on University Lake in Carrboro. Three generations gather at Dennis Koehler and Cee Koehler’s cabin off Highway 87 in Chatham County, including their grandsons – Isaac, Miles, Charlie, Porter and Jude – who love to play in the expansive backyard. The cabin sits on 5 acres of land near a small pond. C H M
