Moving to Chapel Hill/Durham....maybe!!

Jump to last reply

Older daughter just applied to Duke and Chapel Hill for grad school. Hopefully, she'll be accepted at one (or both!) of them. If that's the case, I and my younger daughter will move to the area so we can stay geographically close.

Can anyone recommend towns that are close to the schools....about 30 minutes in any direction. Chapel Hill seems to be quite expensive. Looking for a small town feel with a lot of charm. A good high school is a must...doesn't have to be top-tier, but should have a solid reputation.

At this point, no matter where we end up, I'm uncertain about buying vs renting. If renting, I'd like to keep costs under 1500/mo for a 2 -3 bedroom property.

Thanks in advance everyone!
