Tour the Dean Smith Center

While the basketball season may be over, you can still go on a self-guided tour of the Dean Smith Center, home of the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team. You’ll be able to bask in the historical greatness of a stadium featuring a men’s basketball program that has won five National Championships, made 19 Final Four appearances, and starred numerous future Hall-of-Famers. With credentials like that, there’s no doubt that North Carolina has reached, and stayed atop, the pinnacle of college basketball.

If you happen to be a Duke fan, feel free to disregard that last statement!
