I've become more interested in history the older I get, so I'm excited for the NC Civil War History Center planned near Arsenal Park. What better place for it than America's Hometown? New shops are opening everyday too- have you checked out Winterbloom Tea?

The long time favorites are still here too, like Cameo Art House Theater and Rude Awakening Coffee Shop on Hay and Greg's Pottery on Maxwell St. It won't be long before we have our own "brew district" with Bright Light Brewery and Airborne Brewery joining Huske Hardware - all within walking distance of each other! I can't wait for the day I can tell my friends we can go take a brewery tour as an option when they visit! They'll think they've died and gone to Asheville ;)
As I write this, I'm realizing I have waayyyy more to say about this town I call home than I have time for in one post. So, I think as a summer blogging challenge to myself, I'm going to post about my favorite parts of Fayetteville. Life has been pretty hectic lately with three middle schoolers in the house and a hot real estate market so this challenge will give me the perfect excuse to get out and rediscover the "Ville that I know and love. Who's coming with me?
