Ditch the car. Walk.
Carrboro and Chapel Hill make it simple. Town signs and online maps urge folks to explore its arteries on foot. Walk Carrboro stickers affixed on restaurant windows and storefronts champion a stroll. Chapel Hill street signs installed on Franklin and Columbia streets point to town and university destinations. Best part, minutes in lieu of miles -- easier to wrap your head around.

The vintage Pure Oil sign in Chapel Hill is a footprint of the former Pure Oil Company gas station and garage which is the same building that currently houses Fed Ex Kinkos. Prior to current tenants, the building housed a Pizza Hut. Records indicate that Pizza Hut kept the building's original structure in tact, in lieu of tearing it down, as a result of protests.
