Few things are quite as soothing as a day out on a canoe, basking in the warm sunshine. Sitting on the bank and casting your line into the water can ease the mind, too. But if you’re fishing at University Lake, don’t get too lost in reverie; this lake has plenty of hungry fish.

At Carrboro Community Garden, green-thumbed locals tend to a wide variety of seasonal crops. Anyone can get involved in this donation-supported local gem.
