If you could stand at one end of Franklin Street and see all the way to the other, you’d pretty much be taking a glimpse at the soul of Chapel Hill. Commonly known as The Strip, the street running from downtown Chapel Hill to Carrboro manages to capture and display a taste of what visitors and residents seem to love about the area – diverse restaurants, unique shopping, a flourishing local arts scene and the down-home charm of old North Carolina.

Up and down The Strip, the dining choices are as rich as Chapel Hill itself. A Turkish teahouse. A Mediterranean deli. A Starbuck's. Northern Italian cuisine. Sushi. California chic. Elegant dining at Elaine's. A microbrewery at Top of the Hill. And there, in dead center of the artery, the blue plate specials of the Carolina Coffee Shop.
