Located in North Carolina’s Cumberland County, Fayetteville is typically thought of as the home city of Fort Bragg, one of the country’s top Army installations. However, there is much more to Fayetteville than Fort Bragg. Most people are unaware of the fact that Fayetteville has won the National Civic League’s All-American Award several times. All in all, Fayetteville is the state’s sixth-largest city yet it lacks the name recognition of Charlotte and other nearby cities for various reasons. Positioned within the Sandhills in the eastern portion of the state’s Coastal Plain region, this city has a total population of over 210,000 people. Fayetteville’s metropolitan area is the largest in the southeastern portion of the state. Suburban portions of the city including the aforementioned Fort Bragg, Spring Lake, Hope Mills, Stedman, Pope Field, and Raeford stretch the city’s metropolitan boundaries quite far.
