What Bert Has To Say About Fayetteville Metro Area


Once an important inland port on the Cape Fear River, Fayetteville houses two large military installations, Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. The two facilities provide the city’s main economic base. The clean, attractive and walkable downtown contains numerous historic buildings and favorably reflects the results of an extensive revitalization program.
