Third annual DestinationFAY


A diverse community rich with opportunity

Welcome to DestinationFay, an insider’s guide to Fayetteville.

Whether you are a Fayetteville native, a newcomer or just visiting, we hope this guide will help you discover new things about the community.

From shopping to dining to entertainment, Fayetteville has a lot to offer. Spend a weekend catching up with friends at a locally owned restaurant. Catch a movie at a downtown theater. Explore hiking trails and parks with family.

Fayetteville is home to Fort Liberty, the largest Army installation in the country. You’ll find active-duty personnel settling into neighborhoods along with military retirees who decided to stay when their service was completed.

Ours is an international city — a melting pot, if you will — because of the number of people from all over the world who settle here.

But it’s also a close-knit community filled with friendly and caring people. They rally behind those troops, and their families, when they are called to duty. They help organizations with fundraising and offer a hand in times of need.

The lists here are not all-inclusive, but they are a good way to start exploring Fayetteville and the surrounding area.
