Travel Tips for Chapel Hill

The thrill of victory!

by acemj

A friend of mine who goes to school here gave me two tickets to the game (thanks, Elizabeth!) and my buddy Dave and I had a great time seeing these two rivals hit the hardwood. Despite the fact that Carolina was having a down year and Duke was favored in the game (Carolina was 5-10 and Duke 11-4 in the league coming at the time), Carolina pulled it out in the end. They say that when arch rivals get together, you can throw their records out the window, and that is certainly the case in this matchup. The whole game was close, and the arena was deafening. Since we had student seats, we were surrounded by a sea of Carolina blue college kids who never sat down during the whole game. We had a great time cheering right along with them and screaming until our voices were hoarse!

Carolina Wins!

by acemj

Carolina has a great winning tradition particularly in men's basketball and women's soccer. The basketball program, however, garners most of the national attention. On this day, they came out victorious over their arch rival, the Duke Blue Devils.

Carolina Blue

"Tar Heels"

"Carolina in my mind"

In my mind I'm going to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
And ain't it just like a friend of mine
to hit me from behind
Yes I'm going to Carolina in my mind
Karen she's a silver sun
You best walk away and watch it shining
Watch her watch the morning come
A silver tear appearing now
I'm crying ain't I
Going to Carolina in my mind

"Yes I'm going to Carolina in my mind"

Their ain't no doubt in no ones
mind that loves the finest thing around
Whisper something soft and kind
And hey babe the sky's on fire
I'm dying ain't I
Going to Carolina in my mind
In my mind I'm going to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
And ain't it just like a friend of mine
to hit me from behind
Yes I'm going to Carolina in my mind
Dark and silent late last night
I think I might have heard the highway call
Peace in flight and dogs that bite
And signs that might the Owe meant say
I'm going I'm going
I'm going to Carolina in my mind
With the holy host of others
standing around me
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
And it seems like it goes on like
this forever
You must forgive me if I'm up and gone
to Carolina in my mind
In my mind I'm going to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
And ain't it just like a friend of mine
To hit me from behind
Yes I'm going to Carolina in my mind

Rivalry on Tobacco Road

by acemj

"March Madness!"

Chapel Hill, most notably is home of the nation's oldest public university, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Most of us who live in the state simply refer to it as "Carolina", unless you are a fan of their arch rival school Duke. In that case, you probably refer to them as the "Tar Holes" a spin on their team's mascot the Tar Heel. In North Carolina, college basketball is king and there is no greater rivalry in the world of college basketball than Duke versus Carolina. After living in the state for nearly ten years, I finally made it to a game between these two bitter enemies. And boy, did it live up to the hype!!

The outcome is obvious from the photo: Carolina 82, Duke 79 (March 9, 2003)

I lived in Chape Hill for 3 years as a student at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Chapel Hill is really "the Southern part of Heaven." It's great to visit to see famous Tar Heel basket ball games, one of the rock shows, numerous bars, and coffee shops.

This picture was taken during the snow storm few years ago that closed the university.
