CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (October 10, 2019) – The Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau has launched a new app to help tourists and natives alike.

“More than 300,000 users visit our website annually, and almost 60 percent of them do it on their mobile phone, making this app a much needed feature to better promote our destination,” said Laurie Paolicelli, Executive Director of the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau.

The free Visit Chapel Hill app includes listings for places to stay, events, what to see and do, where to eat and drink, as well as local tours.  It brings the principal highlights from our website into one easy navigable app and can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and Google Play. You can also easily download it when your visit the bureau's website on your mobile device.

Among its features:  Top Things to Do, Top 10 Fun Facts, Walking Tours, and information on surrounding towns, including Historic Hillsborough. Self-guided tours are also included for murals and historic Franklin Street. Learn about guided tours through the app as well.

“It’s about mobile,” Paolicelli said.  “Everyone’s migrating completely to this mobile space.”

This is the second tourism App produced by the Visitors Bureau.  In 2017 the agency launched an agritourism mobile app, VisitNCFarms, which connects North Carolina visitors to the agricultural assets Orange County.  The App was produced in conjunction with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and can be found in Apple App Store and Google Play.
