About Fayetteville

Fayetteville, N.C., is a Community of History, Heroes, and a Hometown Feeling

It is the home of the U.S. Army's Fort Bragg, from where thousands of elite paratroopers deploy on missions to the world's hot spots. The city’s colorful heritage includes historical leaders who defined themselves during Vietnam, the two world wars, the Civil War and Revolutionary War. And its citizens today offer gracious, hospitable Southern charm. They are eager to make your visit one to remember!

We are proud of our accomplishments. Fayetteville was one of only 10 cities in the United States in 2001 to receive the coveted "All-America City" award from the National Civic League.

You’ll never get bored here! The Airborne and Special Operations Museum in the downtown area is the most visited attraction in North Carolina. Other areas of interest include Fayetteville’s Botanical Gardens, the Fayetteville Museum of Art, as well as Fort Bragg, where on certain days you can actually watch parachute training jumps. We also have all the shopping, lodging and restaurant choices of metropolitan areas. We’re just a short stop off Interstate 95, about an hour from the South Carolina border.
