Fayetteville, NC

show info

Home to Fort Bragg and a rich American history, Fayetteville might seem like a sleepy military town in the heart of North Carolina, but scratch the surface of this city and you’ll find people with hearts of gold and some of the strongest housing and job markets in the US. The city itself was recently ranked #3 Most Affordable Housing Market in the Nation by Businessweek and #1 Job Market in in the Country for recent college graduates by the Daily Beast. Not too shabby for a small town of 200k.

Liberty Point

<p>There's a great deal of history stashed away in this sleepy southern town and Liberty Point is one of the most famous pieces of that. Although some of the earliest settlers were loyal to the British Government, there was a number of active patriots who called Fayetteville their home, and in 1775, a year before the Declaration of Independence had been drawn up, one group created the Liberty Point Resolves, claiming their individual rights and liberties in the face of British imperialism. The building where it was signed still stands and will always be a testament to that time.</p>

Carver's Falls

<p>If you're more of an outdoors type and enjoy the serenity and beauty of nature, there are a number of places you can go to relax and decompress from city life. Carver falls is one of those places. Located in an untouched 55 acre area of forest in the Sandhills of North Carolina, this previously secret spot has been slowly gaining notoriety as one of the most scenic spots in the state. The best way to get a good look at it, aside form hiking in, is to sign up for a zip line tour or treetop adventures. Breathtaking views await!</p>

Downtown Fayetteville

<p>Previously, there was very little to find that might draw your attention to the downtown area of Fayetteville. Old buildings, abandoned mills, and bankrupt businesses were a pock on the aesthetic nature of the city. Since then, things have changed though. Hay Street, which is the main drag, has undergone a massive cleanup over the past few decades and now provides a number of tourist friendly shops, restaurants and entertainment. More people are moving out of the suburbs and back to the city now that the revitalization project has breathed new life into the downtown area.</p>
