Dec 8, 2007
Fayetteville North Carolina is a relatively undiscovered gem that anyone considering moving to North Carolina should add to their list of considerations.

If the idea of spending time in Fayetteville is aluring and you want more information then the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (FACVB) is the place to check. The FACVB is responsible for advertising and informing people about the city of Fayetteville, North Carolina and the Cumberland County area. In case you weren't aware, Fayetteville is a quality travel destination, whether it is for business gatherings, vacation spots, or just to visit the area.

The main office of the FACVB is located near downtown Fayetteville and there is easy access from Interstate 95. Their office is open Monday through Friday, 8AM - 5PM and on Saturdays from 10AM - 4PM. They also have a smaller office located near the Fayetteville Area Transportation Museum. This office is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM - 4PM. This location is also easy to access from Interstate 95.

The bureau serves a variety of clients: group tour operators, meeting planners, travelers, and various media outlets. The bureau also plays a key role in assisting the hospitality sector (hotels, restaurants) in Fayetteville and Cumberland County. Visitor guides are distributed every week to visitors and transplants to the Fayetteville and Cumberland County areas. This has resulted in a lot of word of mouth publicity for the bureau.

Here are some of the services the FACVB offers:
Familiarization Tours - Meeting planners can schedule these kinds of tours with the FACVB.

Media Information - If you are looking to get the word out about a meeting or special event in the Fayetteville or Cumberland County areas, the bureau can assist in contacting the local media outlets.

The bureau's site offers plenty of information about Fayetteville, North Carolina and Cumberland County. On the site, they also have a welcome video you can watch. Also on the website, there is information regarding the history of Fayetteville. You can click on the links and read information about their historical sites, some of which are registered in the National Register of Historic Places. If you're a Civil War enthusiast, there is a PDF document which you can download. It provides a brief summary of Civil War trail sites.

For visitors, the website also offers information about tours, dining, the military (including group tours to Fort Bragg), shopping and if you are looking to play a hole in one, golf courses.
