About Fayetteville

On the east coast of America lies Fayetteville, a small town with a big heart. Few places in America have played such an influential role in the country’s most defining moments as Fayetteville has. Now it is a thriving place with a hometown feel, but with all the amenities of a big city. There is always something happening from museums to galleries, restaurants, nightlife, parks and festivals, there is a never ending supply of entertainment. Downtown Fayetteville is prized on its walkability and vibrancy. With so much to do there is something for everyone. Come for the day, but be prepared, you might end up staying for a week.

Fayetteville has been nicknamed The All-American City and has won the prestigious All-American City Award from the National Civic League three times, and for good reason. Fayetteville has played important roles during defining historical American moments. In 1775 the Liberty Point Resolve pledged its support for the Revolutionary War. In the late 1700s the North Carolina Legislature would meet here to discuss policy matters. In 1789 the Legislature sanctioned the U.S Constitution and chartered the University of North Caroline, which is now America’s oldest state university. Due to it’s past roles and it’s current military presence, Fayetteville is today seen as the epitome of American freedom, democracy and patriotism.
