Faabala, how much of what the previous poster posted have you actually seen?? I've been here all of my life and have seen VERY little of what was mentioned...and A LOT of that went the way of the demolition of Hay Street!

Oh....BTW downwardly_mobile, I've lived here my ENTIRE life AND I'm college educated. And, I'm NOT married to a GI! Never even dated one, not one, never. Never got a tattoo--and they are NOT opening new parlors weekly. And in case you've not been to Fayetteville recently (which your post leaves me to believe that's the case), those "Asian parlors" no longer exist. And yes, while there is prostitution (what city DOESN'T have it), it's not as prevalent as you would have one believe.

I will say this... With 50,000 soldiers on Fort Bragg we do have many tattoo parlors. Tattoo are very popular with the public nowadays. I don't have any nor do I want any. I can assure you that churches outnumber tattoo parlors and brothels by a large margin.

I don't patronize bars, nighclubs, or solicit prostitutes (mostly on craiglist in this day and age it seems).

If one chooses to interact with the dregs of society then it would not be hard to find such places in Fayetteville.

In my daily life It does not effect me or my family. We have rich vibrant social life, we have a large circle of friends (we had a 100 people to our house for a pig roast and PPV Manny Pacquiao v Mosley fight) We belong to club and civic organizations. I volunteer at local museums.

Fayetteville is what you make it.

I lived in Fayetteville for 7 years. I was miserable being there. There is very little to do. I had to take my family to Raleigh, Myrtle beach and Charlotte for a little bit of excitement. Later, I moved to the Carolina Lakes area just outside of Spring Lake which was a great area and lived there for 5 years but still had to go to the next bigger city which was Fayetteville or Sanford for the malls, most shopping and restaurants etc. I really like Fort Bragg. I was active duty and later went to college there since I was married to another active duty. I finally move to the Raleigh/ Durham area and couldn't be happier.

I still go to Fayetteville from time to time but I think the cities outside Ft Stewart, Fort Benning, Ft Hood, Ft Eustis, Fort Drum(beside the cold), and Ft Stewart are much better than Fayetteville. Crime has gotten worse since I first came there in 1999. They are bulit up the place and it is more crowded than ever. I rented my brand new house out and moved away because I was not happy there. But everyone is different. If you know someone down there, try staying for 2 weeks. My family came down from Ann Arbor and Detroit Michigan and were surprised I stayed so long after leaving the Army. My husbands family would visit from Virgina beach and Philly and were ready go but stay to visit because of family. I don't think it is a city I would choose to live in at all considering the other great cities in North Carolina but I do know a lot of vets that decide to stay there but most stay because of contract jobs through Ft Bragg.

Very little to do???? Let's see........
this weekend I took my daughter to the National Hunting and Fishing day event at the John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Center.

She got to learn about all the state animals, learn about beekeeping, reptiles, raptors. She got to try fly fishing, a casting contest, kayaking, lure making, shoot a bb gun and bow/arrows and catch some nice big catfish in the ponds there.

Then we went to the International Folk Festival downtown a festival park to enjoy the great ethnic foods from dozens of counties and see the vendor and activity booths all set up by the Fayetteville Arts council. My daughter got to make Javanese shadow puppets, a Native American unity bracelet, see a great presentation on Indian Culture and see many very good dance groups on the big stage. We also helped work in Mom's Filipino club's food booth.

Fayetteville is only boring if you don't get out and get involved.

IF you have daughters and you want them pregnat by Joes by the age of 15, then, move to fayetteville. If you want drugged out kids, because there is nothing recreational for them to do, move to fayetteville. Everytime I visit fayetteville I can always expect three things, 1. nothing to change except more resturants, 2. nothing to change except more joes humping our young daughters, and 3. nothing to ever change.... I grew up there, from grade school to highschool, what a crap hole, 3 days after I graduated highschool I moved away... far far far far away, till I hit ocean on the west side! when i hear of fayettehell, fayettenam, the ville, da ville, anyplace with ville is country trash.... i just want to puke.. and yes, all of my friends that stayed there are still doing the same **** from highschool... which was 10 years ago!

I am glad you taught your daughter to shoot a bb gun and bow and arrow, atleast now she will be able to defend herself from the crime in that low life place and not to mention all the joes that will try to take advantage of her when she is 14, with her friends at cross creek mall... too many storys of joes taken advantage of young girls from the mall... in my junior high(yes, jr. high, before middle school was there) we had 4 girls pregnate from joe and they didnt know where the dad was because he change duty stations... yep, fayettehell is a great place to live with lots to do! ya for you!
