HOSPITALITY AT ITS FINEST

FROM HOME

W

hen you’re traveling, part of the fun is being somewhere new and exciting. However, sometimes you do like the creature comforts of home…or at least some familiar names and faces. Fortunately, in “America’s Home Town” we have all of your favorite hotel chains, bed & breakfasts, and even campsites. So no matter how you choose to snooze, when you visit Fayetteville you will rest easy every night.

Regardless of where you’re staying and no matter how nice the accommodations, all hotels, inns, and other accommodations could use a little bit of your own personal touches so they will feel more like home. Here are just a few examples:

*

Hang it up. Don’t live out of a suitcase; hang up your clothes and put them in

drawers just like you do at home. This also eliminates clutter and who needs that?

* Bring your own. Even if your hotel has toiletry items, we all have our favorites so

take them on the road; your favorite shampoo or soap is the perfect way to start—or end—your day.

*

Get personal. Even one favorite

item from home can add a lot to your room. A framed photo of your loved ones would look perfect on your nightstand. No matter how long you’re visiting us, the last thing we want is for you to get homesick. Then again, you may enjoy Fayetteville so much that you’ll never want to leave and that’s just fine with us! www.VisitFayettevilleNC.com

This tour is for those who like to stay up late, have an adventurous side, and who enjoy sleeping in – late.

DAY ONE Start this tour by checking into your hotel in time for supper. Put your “DO NOT DISTURB” sign on the door. Later, you’ll be glad you did. After dinner, you may want to drink some coffee, or some courage, with your dessert, because the ghosts are waiting for you. Your coach will drop you off at Heritage Square. Will a goblin greet you? Folklore has it that two have been wandering through the building since the Civil War. One may be in a black dress. Find out why. With flashlight in tow, walk to the Cross Creek Cemetery. Hometown heroes have been buried there since 1785. Many have been waiting for you. Others have been there since the Civil War. Gather together and hear their tales. Then run back to your coach. Spooks may be following you! You’ll drive by the Oval Ballroom and learn about the

1850 trial for the “murder of the century.” The whodunit involves a little rat poison, a husband, and a cup of coffee. You might hear some noises from the Kyle House or get a strange vibe from old James Kyle, himself. He’s a hometown hero who’s been waiting for you too! Is anyone hanging out at the Ghost Tower? Got goose bumps yet? Collect your thoughts and calm down. At Vander, you’ll get out and walk the track…train track that is. Look! Do you see a light? The Vander Light. It comes close – then goes far. You may even see a spirit walking with it. Can you catch it? By now, the sun should be starting to rise and it’s time for bed.

DAY TWO Start off your day with a brunch and head over to the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex to find out what happened to you last night! Were the ghosts real? Could there have been more? How many battlegrounds and cemeteries are around? You’ll find that out, and much more, during your visit. Then, catch a nap on your way back home! Boo!

One Day modern

TRAVELING

T

here once was a period in Fayetteville’s colorful history when travelers came in and out of town via a series of plank roads— literally, wooden planks that covered dirt and stone road beds. Luckily, it’s a lot easier to make your way to America’s Home Town…and you have your pick of options, too!

A choice the travelers of yesterday did not have was

of Atlanta and Charlotte every day. Once you arrive you’ll find a variety of rental car options that will make your trip even simpler. Getting to Greater Fayetteville via North Carolina’s beautiful blue skies is quick and easy. Then there are those of us that like to travel at a more relaxed pace and revel in the glory of the golden age of transportation via the “iron horse” better known as the train. Amtrak makes four local stops—two southbound, two northbound—every day so you can spend your travel time marveling at the natural splendor outside your window until the train pulls into the historic depot right in the heart of downtown Fayetteville. All aboard! Fortunately, if you want to leave the plane and train schedules behind, you are definitely in luck as Fayetteville is even easier to get to by car. Conveniently located right off Interstate 95, we have the perfect pit stop for a couple of hours, a couple of days...or even a couple of weeks! As easy as Greater Fayetteville is to get to, you’ll still find it hard to leave! www.VisitFayettevilleNC.com 51
