Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau Publishes First Ever Guide to Neighborhoods

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.  — To meet the growing number of inquiries about Orange County, the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau — a division of Orange County government — has published a 48-page glossy publication, Orange County, North Carolina Neighborhoods, featuring 24 areas of Orange County, from Southern Village to Schley.

The new publication will be distributed through the Visitors Center, local real estate offices and government and commerce. 

“This is not a business directory but rather a colorful, photographic representation of the diversity in our county, from Northside neighborhood to Cedar Grove and West Hillsborough,” said Laurie Paolicelli, director of the Visitors Bureau.

As the Triangle population increases and more families visit and invest in Orange County, the Visitors Bureau is committed to providing comprehensive information in one publication.

The cover features Lake Orange, north of Hillsborough, and some of the neighborhoods included are Calvander, White Cross, Maple View and Dairyland Road, Northside, Southern Village, downtown Hillsborough, Arcadia and Pacifica in Carrboro and more.

The Visitors Bureau published the guide with designer Gwendolyn Blackburn and photographer Alicia Stemper. Other photos and historic facts are contributed or provided by local neighborhood associations, area photographers and guest writers.

The goal of the Orange County Neighborhoods Guide is to spotlight all of Orange County, from downtown Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough to some lesser known areas of Orange County that hold appeal to visitors, relocating families, retirees and business investors.
