#blue discovery. Winter seems so long ago. University Gardens is a conservation garden to understand, appreciate and conserve plants and to advance a sustainable relationship. There are a few short trails along the way that will take you to beautiful sceneries and each plant has a tag with name and country of provenance. Old well: one of the University's(North Carolina) few sources of water for more than a century and the official symbol of the University Baklava The Forest Theater is a must see when visiting #chapelhill and #unc-chapelhill Visitor Centre South Bulding at UNC. Originally a residence hall, its most famous resident was President James K. Polk, Class of 1818. Beautiful spring day at Chapel Hill #delicious. Whether you enjoy a meal inside or get oysters to cook at home, Squids provides some awesome food. Full bar, good service and reasonable prices . I have gotten oysters from here many times and have always been satisfied with taste and freshness 😁 This free botanical garden is on the UNC campus although you would not know it as a visitor. The gardens are beautiful and have a huge assortment of sculptures. I was impressed with the amount of information the garden had on the plants as well as the art. A great activity to do if you are in the area! Peaceful, natural, beautiful, and full of inspiring art! There is a free parking area and an information center with everything you could need. A great little hike in #chapelhill. This is the Brock Terrace in Battle Park. #springinNC Tuesday night all you can eat crablegs. This place is filled with tv's, good seating for one or 20+,service is on point, beers are cold (over 100 to choose from) and the food is well prepared and very tasty. I lean towards the Crablegs😜 Good Friday at Church of the Cross in Chapel Hill Christus Pantokrator Chapel In North Carolina, tots come with pulled pork and BBQ sauce.
