What do you like about Fayetteville? The suburbs are nice. The established neighborhoods that aren't ghetto or cheap housing are good places to live in. As far as people go there are a few decent ones who keep to themselves you'll have to explore the city to find them.
What do you dislike about Fayetteville? The demographics suck. Fayetteville is about 48 percent white and 44 percent black. There is animosity between the races not so much because of color but because of socioeconomic disparity. On one side you got the military which all live similar lifestyles and on the other side are the civilians, most who aren't well educated and tend to work industrial or service jobs, at the bottom of the food chain. The average is about 30 something. Also there are too many men due to the military so if you aren't hooked up by the end of high school you better leave town or join the army. All the females tend to seek out military men not for love but for financial improvement. The towns temperment is hostile. Too many guys harassing the females so the females tend to be anti social and reactive. The women, ugly or beautiful, automatically assume you want them. As far as education goes avoid FTCC. The local community college houses alot of lowlifes. Its cheap education so you get what you pay for. The college is crowded and is a shake and bake operation. It is mass education with little regard to quality of learning. Fayetteville State university located is in a bad part of town. Areas to avoid are Bragg blvd, Murchison Road, and Bunce Road. Unless you like strip malls and strip joints there is not too much entertainment in Fayetteville.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Lake Rim park is nice to visit and good for outings with family. There are decent places near the Methodist College area. The neighborhoods going towards downtown are nice. You can walk around on sidewalks and enjoy the weather.
How expensive is it? Housing varies. There are some locations that are overrated. Because most landlords set thier rental prices based on military BAH you won't get away with too many steals. Gasoline prices are mediocre. If you're military and get gas on post be ready for long lines.
Is it safe? Depends who you are and where you live. Trouble usually comes looking for you in Fayetteville. Most people stick to thier own types that is whites with whites blacks with blacks etc. This town/city is really not good for young people in their twenties.
How is the weather? The weather is kinda crappy mostly hot and humid. Sometimes hurricanes dump lots of rain in the area. Pollen can really mess you up in the spring time if you have allergies.
Additional thoughts? Fayetteville has a population of about 300,000 plus. There is bad traffic during certain hours most of it headed towards Fort Bragg. Job outlook isnt too good either. Unless you want to work for military contractors there arent too many high paying jobs. Try the big cities near central NC. Also look out for hillbillies there are many around the city and beyond who are ill willed opportunist just waiting to take advantage of decent people.
