Chapel Hill One Of America’s Best Towns For July 4th

July 4th Fireworks

Travel + Leisure has ranked the top 20 towns in the country to enjoy 4th of July celebrations, and Chapel Hill was voted among the top 10! Festivities around town run the gamut, and there are options for students and families alike! Head over to Kenan Memorial Stadium for live music from Bull City Syndicate, as well as a watermelon-eating contest where the top prize is tickets to UNC games, and topped off with a fireworks display. Travel + Leisure’s readers also recommend microbrewery Top of the Hill or West End Wine Bar for revelers seeking more festive libations. The gates at Kenan Stadium will open at 7 PM, and fireworks will begin at 9:30 PM-get there early for good seats!
