Fayetteville is a city located in the Sandhills of North Carolina. Built along the Cape Fear River, the city boasts rolling landscapes of lush forests, waterfalls and wildlife. At first glance, it may seem much like any other American city, but its strong ties to the military combined with its distinctive southern charm, will soon make you realise there is far more to this city than meets the eye.
Home to the U.S. army post of Fort Bragg, Fayetteville has long enjoyed a history that is rooted in the military. The Airborne and Special Operations Museum has a number of interesting exhibits, while for a broader history of the area, the Museum of the Cape Fear and Arsenal Park are also good options.
There are also some excellent outdoor attractions, particularly the Cape Fear River Trail and Botanical Gardens. Lake Rim Park and Fantasy Lake are great places to enjoy a picnic or concert, with lots of activities to keep the young ones busy too! Carver’s Fall is a natural landmark in the heart of the surrounding forest, and can be accessed via zip-line and treetop tours.
Downtown Fayetteville is home to some historical sites and museums. The old Market House is a prominent landmark and you’ll find many markets sporting vintage items and local delicacies.
