Bahama, North Carolina — This unincorporated community of around 3,300 residents (2000 US census) in northern Durham County was originally named "Balltown" in the 1700s. It was later renamed to reflect three leading area families: BAll, HArris and MAngum. This small community borders Lake Michie, which offers some of the finest largemouth bass fishing in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. Bahama, NC also benefits from all of the amenities of the nearby City of Durham, only 12 miles to the south.
Butner, North Carolina — This town of about 6,300 residents offers an unusual combination of urban convenience, rural lifestyle and employment potential. Interstate 85 provides easy access to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill for both recreation and product distribution. Though a large portion of its workforce is employed in manufacturing, its biggest employers are federal and state governments. Government facilities in Butner, NC include the new Central Regional Psychiatric Hospital, The Murdoch Center (which provides rehabilitation and therapy services to those with developmental disabilities), the Polk Youth Institution and the Butner Federal Corrections Complex. Those who enjoy outdoor recreation can enjoy the nearby Falls Lake State Recreation Area.

Carrboro, North Carolina — In many ways a cousin to neighboring Chapel Hill, this town of about 19,500 residents is known for its strong community identity. This attitude is embodied in the Weaver Street Market, a health-food cooperative that opened in June 1988 as a truly community-owned business. It sponsors more than 250 free community events a year. Carrboro is also home to several of the founders of the modern hooping movement, a style of dance where hoops are used as props or dance partners. What started as informal performances at the Weaver Street Market's weekly music events has evolved into an annual Hoop Convergence in Carrboro and surrounding areas. In addition, the weekly Carrboro Farmer's Market is nationally-rated as one of the finest local farmer's markets in the country. All goods come from a 50-mile radius of Carrboro. Carrboro, NC is also home to two well-regarded musical venues, The Carrboro Arts Center and Cat's Cradle. Carrboro is located in Orange County about 15 miles southeast of the City of Durham and about three miles from Chapel Hill.
Chapel Hill, North Carolina — To many people, this town of about 56,000 residents is synonymous the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the nation's first public university which consistently ranks among the nation's top research universities. The university is also affiliated with UNC Hospitals and is the clinical home to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. But the university is not all there is to Chapel Hill, NC. The town offers a unique combination of natural, educational and cultural amenities. Among its many accolades are Top 10 Best Places to Raise Kids (Business Week — November 2009) and Top 10 Best Places to Start a Business (Entrepreneur Magazine — Aug. 2009). No wonder it's nicknamed "The Southern Part of Heaven." Chapel Hill is located in Orange County about 12 miles southwest of the City of Durham.
Hillsborough, North Carolina — This historic town of about 6,660 residents is the county seat of Orange County.

Nature lovers can enjoy the bordering Eno River State Park or the Occoneechee Speedway, a 44-acre site with three miles of walking trails. The speedway once housed one of the first two NASCAR tracks to open in the 1949 inaugural season. The mile-long track is still visible. Tour maps and guided tours of the town are available at the Orange County Visitor's Center, located in the Alexander Dickson House, which was the last headquarters of the Confederacy.
