Fayetteville is a great family city-Home of the Airborne. There are a lot of great things to do in the city to include going downtown to see the historic sights, parks to unwind and relax with family and fun activities for the family. The only down side to living in Fayetteville is the are no Pro- football/ sports teams or stadiums to watch sports games. Fayetteville is welcoming a minor league baseball team for baseball fans!

I enjoy Fayetteville a lot. I work for a financial company and work with many great people! The housing market is good and the job market is also decent. My office moved me here from St. Louis and I prefer Fayetteville over it. I would definitely recommend Fayetteville to anyone looking for an affordable, comfortable, family loving city. North Carolina as a whole is pretty good, I rarely travel to the other cities outside of Fayetteville, as Fayetteville is the metro city for the area, so everything I would want is in the city, unless I want to travel, which makes its convenient location to Wilmington a huge plus for the beaches and around 5-6 hours from D.C., 8.5 hrs from NYC, and 3.5 hrs from NC mountains, nothing beats it.
In Fayetteville, we have a military base located here. This is nice advantage in the city because it adds to the diversity of people. The city has a sense of more security with the base and constant training's going on locally. With more and more families and soldier's coming to the town, the city is constantly growing! Jobs are being created with new business being added to the community. With the population growing a pro would be more activities in the city are being offered or created. Something that I would love to see change would be the traffic flow. With the population growing rapidly so is the traffic making it difficult to get your destination in a timely manner.
