40+ Holiday Events in the Fayetteville Area

holiday events in fayetteville nc
Call me old fashioned, but I think the holidays should be celebrated in their appropriate season. If you pay attention, there's a sweet rhythm to how the season begins, and that's especially true in Cumberland County. Earlier this week, city workers hung wreaths on all the light poles that line the main corridors of Cool Spring Downtown District, where I work and play. For me, that's one of those rituals th… [...]

A Year of Firsts with Go Fayetteville – 2018

At the end of 2017, I decided to write a blog on all my “firsts” with Go Fayetteville, and again this year, I'm taking the time to reflect. I know I’m not alone in saying this: 2018 was a hard year. Hurricane Florence came and went and left behind damage in its wake. However, I could write a whole blog on just how the communities of Cumberland County rallied and helped one another rebuild. Even though my family was… [...]

Sure, you can find several popular burger chains here, but do you know where our mom-and-pop grills are? Better yet, do you know who our locals claim makes the best burger here? I recently took an informal poll of my coworkers and Go Fayetteville’s foll… [...]

Find Your Family Tradition in Cumberland County

Each holiday season I try to plan a new outing for my family that will hopefully become a lasting tradition. Last year, we experienced the grandeur of Holiday Lights in the Garden. Year before that, we joined the downtown revelry at A Dickens Holiday and took in the classic It’s a Wonderful Life on stage. As this season quickly approaches, I’m noticing how many festivities are planned not just in Fayettevi… [...]

On the Trail of Independence

On June 20, 1775, a year before the Declaration of Independence would be signed, a group of 55 patriots made history in Fayetteville. At this significant occasion, the Cumberland Association signed another important document that would later be known as The Liberty Point Resolves, pledging their devotion to the cause of independence. If you visit the area now, over 240 years later, you will enjoy explo… [...]
