Enter the little town of Carrboro, North Carolina – vibrant and yet still somehow managing to engage visitors and locals with the recognizable charm of a small town. Carrboro may be North Carolina’s best kept secret, boasting environmentally conscious infrastructure, superior schools and a thriving art scene, with a fantastic location sealing the proverbial deal. It’s only a matter of time before word gets out and throngs of movers will be sidling up for a spot.

Towns of this modest size don’t often offer designated bike paths in eight parks, as well as a variety of trails in choice areas for biking or hiking, like wooded Morgan Creek.

Free buses encourage residents to take advantage of public transportation, with one major destination being UNC’s campus. The University sits comfortably at No. 30 in US News’ 2019 collegiate ranking system, holding UNC in the top 10 percent of a 312 university nationwide comparison.
