Pursue Freedom

May 8, 2016

The Fayetteville area is home to the U.S. Army’s most populous base, Fort Bragg. The community wears this distinction proudly, and shows its appreciation by actively pursuing the freedoms that those soldiers protect. During your visit, experience the area like a local – from parks and museums to breweries and zip lines – and relish in the excitement that’s found around every turn.

Choose your team, the game – such as capture the flag or fox and hound – and which of the seven fields you’ll start on at Black River Paintball. Players typically spend about four hours playing six to eight games. Bring your gear, or rent it at the pro shop. And be sure to wear long sleeves and pants, to protect you from the slight sting of a paintball hit.

You can bicycle, rollerblade, jog or walk the paved 5.3-mile Cape Fear River Trail. It has rolling hills, but the views make up for the extra effort. Find signs identifying some of the 700 plant and 150 bird species, restrooms, benches and tables along the way. Start at Clark Park, where a nature center offers exhibits and canoe launch; or Jordan Soccer Complex, which is closer to the trail’s covered bridge.

Experience the speed and excitement of wake-boarding without needing a boat at Smith Lake Recreation Area and Wake Zone Cable Park. An intricate aerial cable system pulls you from the edge of the dock and around the lake. Afterward, hike trails, swim at the beach, fish from shore or a kayak, and spend the night in a rental cabin or the campground.
