Pursue Friendship

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. 

The annual 5-kilometer Color Run in late May is about being active not competitive. Dress in white and join others in one of the starting waves, which begin leaving at 8 a.m. from the Crown Complex, which also hosts concerts and the FireAntz hockey team. At each kilometer, your group will be doused with different colors. Stick around for music and dancing at the post-race party. This year’s theme brings a tropical island feel, and a portion of your entry fee helps two local charities.

No matter how many picky eaters there are in your group, everyone will find what they crave at one of the more than 20 eateries at the Cross Creek Mall food court. Afterward, explore the mall’s more than 1 million square feet, featuring 150-plus stores, from small boutiques to large department stores.

Military personnel and civilians shoot together at Fort Bragg Clay Target Center, where there are 12 skeet and six trap competition-level fields. Schedule an instructor to help improve your technique. Bring your friends and see whose aim is best; loser buys at the onsite snack bar. Extend your visit by reserving an RV site or sharing a meal at one of the gazebos and barbecue grills.
