Welcome to One of America's Best Towns

Tucked into the heart of North Carolina, just an hour south from the famed Research Triangle, lies the thriving city of Fayetteville, NC. Though it's best known as the home of Fort Bragg army base, Fayetteville is much more than just a military installation. In fact, Fort Bragg is the 6th largest city in North Carolina and the largest metro area in the southeastern part of the state. With tons of attractions and opportunities for entertainment, hundreds of acres of parkland, plenty of businesses and employment opportunities, and ideal public schools, Fayetteville truly is a terrific place to call home.
