CHillKids.com was established in 2005 by Kate L, a Chapel Hill/Carrboro mother of five children who moved to Chapel Hill from Alexandria, Virginia (Washington, DC area) in 2003. Kate is a graduate of the University of Virginia (B.A.) and also a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law (J.D.) She was an attorney with a Washington, DC law firm for 8 years before leaving to spend more time with her young children. In her own words, here is the story behind www.CHillKids.com:
When my husband suggested that we move to Chapel Hill, (because he had lived in the area after he graduated from college and thought it would be a great place to raise kids), I kept asking him what in particular about Chapel Hill made it such a great place for families? He didn't have any specific reasons to offer; it was just his strong impression based on living in the Chapel Hill area before he was even married and had kids.
Before moving to Chapel Hill we visited numerous times and I shared his impression that this is a great place to raise kids, but without any specific reasons. When we moved to Chapel Hill in 2003 with our infant, 2 year old and 3 year old (there were only 3 back then!) we immediately began researching and finding child-friendly places and events, and accumulating lots of information and hands-on experience about the countless wonderful, fun things to do and places to go and see in the North Carolina Triangle. Now we can rattle off hundreds of reasons why we LOVE the Chapel Hill - Carrboro - Durham - Hillsborough - Chatham County - Triangle area!
In 2005, I decided to compile all of this wonderful information by creating www.CHillKids.com , so that other families could more easily discover in one convenient online guide the wonderful things that make the Triangle such a great place for families.
Fast forward to 2011, we are working on re-designing and updating our guides, as well as adding many new fun features, including blog features and lots more. Stay tuned and visit often for the best of family living in the Triangle at www.CHillKids.com!
It is the purpose of www.CHillKids.com to share with our readers the insider scoop for the best of family living in the Triangle. We want to make it easy for you to find all of the wonderful family-friendly places, activities and events, farms, berry-picking, pumpkin picking, festivals, museums that this area offers in abundance.
