What it's like to live in Fayetteville, North Carolina: 

Fayetteville is a historically rich community where there are many areas that date back to the revolutionary and civil wars. It is home to Fort Bragg, which is the largest military installation in the world and is known in the military community as "the center of the universe." It is "Home of the Airborne," the infamous 82nd Airborne division, many elite units, and their headquarters, and is a unique mix of Army, Marines, and Navy members. 

Downtown Fayetteville is currently experiencing a massive makeover. The city is remodeling downtown by adding multiple apartment complexes, new businesses, and co-working spaces.

In 2018, the Houston Astros signed a 30 year lease with the city, and together, built a 40 million dollar minor league stadium for the “Fayetteville Woodpeckers” (a minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros) to begin playing in. The stadium won several awards in 2019 and has brought a significant amount of new business and positive attention to Fayetteville. 

Fayetteville is also positioned incredibly, geographically. It is only a two hour drive to the Atlantic Ocean for places like Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, etc. It is only three hours from the mountains and only one hour from Raleigh, North Carolina.
