Fayetteville is a great city if your into a calm vibe kind of town. Fayetteville has no nightlife but it does have many good events for the community to participate in. The houses here are gorgeous and very beautiful and intricate. I could stare all day at the houses and how well they were made. I love it here! I would recommend this city fore newly weds and first born children. I think the schools are okay but still very nice. I think the best school would have to be River Edge Elementary. It is such a lovely school. Great city!

I love Fayetteville! I've lived here for majority of my life and I could not imagine being raised anywhere else. The education is wonderful, there is plenty of entertainment, and convenience for anything else, like food or grocery shopping.
Fayetteville is one of the safest cities in Georgia and possibly in the nation. We have a diverse population, all our schools are excellent, the best hospital, one of the highest income per capita in GA and has a high rate of college educated population. With the introduction of Pinewood Studios many movie related jobs have moved here and our students are able to take Film and Medical related courses in High School and at the Georgia Military College. The airport and the city of Atlanta is just a little north of us and has many Fortune 500 companies located there.
