The local airport is the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, with the airport code RDU. This airport is approximately 30 minutes from Doug's house by car, in good traffic.

Ground Transportation

Chapel Hill has a fairly good public transport system. Buses within the town are free, and buses to and from other cities and the airport (TTA buses) are reasonably priced, though are intended for normal work hours. Arrangements can be made with Doug for rides to and from the airport.

Cars can be rented fairly cheaply online beforehand, but will be much more expensive on the spot; if you intend to drive, reserve a car in advance.


Type B socket, 20A/125V (and to a lesser extent, theType B socket).

Free wifi is common in hotels and homes, as well as coffee shops, some restaurants, and other public places.


Mostly Mexican. There are plenty of nearby restaurants of various types, though we may need to coordinate transportation to get there.

Local Tourism

None. No beaches, no castles, no mountains. Sorry. There are a few little museums, good music venues, and some mildly historical places. Megan and Doug will be happy to show you around what local color exists, and if there is interest, we could arrange a trip to the beach or the mountains, each 3 hours away in opposite directions. Why do I live here, again?
