Franklin Street, Chapel Hill
This is the best place to go for shopping, eating and partying. It's pretty much THE place to go for all Carolina students and it's also heavily frequented by NC State and Duke students. This is a shot from the Top of the Hill pub at the corner of Columbia and Franklin.
RIOT? Celebrating a National Championship in Basketball? Just getting drunk going from bar to bar? Or just doing some shopping during the day? Franklin Street is ‘THE’ street in Chapel Thrill. I got caught up in 2 riots and 1 National Championship on the street. Almost all the best restaurants are here too. The Starting point is really the corner of Franklin and Columbia, dominated for decades by Spanky’s. Expensive, but you go there after you graduate and get a good job.
A night out in Chapel Thrill MUST include Franklin Street, or you haven’t been out.
