Hi my son has been accepted to do the fall semester at this University. We want to go out before term starts in August and I would like to book us both into a hotel or other suitable accommodation before halls open and then I will return home. We would like to be tourists first. Any information would be very appreciated. It will both of ours first time in America and would love to enjoy the area and the attractions that it offers. Please advise including transport for us both and semester transport. All help greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I want to add one more thing - shopping for your son's "domestic" needs, etc. I imagine you will purchase most items on arrival like most from "out of area." There is little shopping in Chapel Hill/Franklin Street walking distance from campus but there is much more, by car, further down both sides of Franklin (toward Carrboro or Durham). There are several major retail chains towards Durham - particularly Bed Bath & Beyond (for linens, kitchen tools, and other household) as well as Kohl's for clothing etc. They are both well priced stores and are near a cluster of more shopping. Also abt 30 minutes away is Southpoint Mall - big mall with other shops surrounding it - located off Interstate 40. You will pass the mall on your way from RDU to Chapel Hill - Fayetteville Street exit. So Mom to Mom - that's my advice. Oh and forget the Siena Hotel as I recommended above. I love it. My 22 yr old son was appalled that I mentioned it - BORING, UGH, who would want to stay there - in other words, not your son either!!! All the best, Maxine
