Update: Read a summary detailing some of your feedback about places not mentioned in the New York Times article.  

The New York Times recently visited Chapel Hill, and even stepped into its "free-spirited neighbor" Carrboro, as a part of its "36 Hours" series. The trip featured local spots to eat, shop and hang out, going from Al's Burger Shack and ending up in the North Carolina Botanical Gardens.

But can you really cover it all in 36 hours? The Times tries to see as much as it can in a short amount of time during its weekend visits to places like Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham,  and while other places may deserve the spotlight, they can be left in its shadow. 

What are the places in Chapel Hill the New York Times missed? We want to hear from you. Comment below with your best spots in town and why they deserve a stop.
