Girls Weekend Fayetteville NC

Cumberland County’s military roots may run deep, but visitors to this area quickly discover our many botanical havens and arts attractions, as highlighted on the Patri-Arts & Gardens Trail. Spring is the perfect time of year to plan a weekend get-away with some girlfriends, and Fayetteville is showing off its feminine side this coming season with a flower show, theatrical classic, art exhibit, and gardener’s symposium. Plus, since we’re in the South, a girls’ weekend here would not be complete without a gun expo.
