Fayetteville, NC

Fayetteville is located in central North Carolina and serves as the county seat of Cumberland County. Among other things, the city of 200,000 is known as the location of Fort Bragg, one of the nation's most significant army bases. Fayetteville is also one of North Carolina's chief centers of higher education, with several universities and other institutions located within the city.

Fayetteville's population is about 200,000. The 2000 census reported a much smaller population of around 121,000. The massive population increase is due mainly to the annexations that were undertaken by the city in the 2000s. Even aside from the annexation, though, Fayetteville's rate of growth has been far higher than the national average.

Over the last few decades, Fayetteville's violent crime rate has been significantly higher than that of the nation as a whole, though such incidents seem to have decreased in recent years.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

For much of the 20th century and up to the present day, Fayetteville's growth and economic life have been strongly attributable to the presence of Fort Bragg, one of the nation's largest and most well known U.S. Army installations. The population of the fort alone is around 30,000; the large number of troops stationed there, in conjunction with the necessity of its servicing and maintenance provides Fayetteville with a major source of revenue and employment. Pope Air Force Base, also located in Fayetteville, serves a lesser but similar role in the city's economy.

Fayetteville also benefits from its status as one of the nation's leading golf resort destinations; the city boasts around two dozen prominent courses, making the area a major draw for tourists.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Most of the population in the city of Fayetteville is urban. Neighborhoods and districts of Fayetteville accommodate around 53,400 houses, out of which more than 48,400 are occupied. Of the occupied houses, more than 25,800 are owner-occupied while renters occupy around 22,600 houses. On average, a house in Fayetteville costs significantly less than the statewide median price.

The walkability of Fayetteville is excellent. Almost all the places, such as grocery stores, schools and restaurants are within a mile's distance from the center of the city.

The neighborhoods in Fayetteville include Stoney Point, Arran Lakes, Haymount, Ramsey St., Spring Lake, Robeson St.

Downtown Fayetteville is home to a number of great restaurants, antique shops, museums and historic sites. The Arts Center, Transportation Museum, Airborne Special Operations Museum, and Fascinate U Children's Museum are all located in downtown Fayetteville. Festival park, a new site for hosting festivals, is also downtown.
