So your saying that Rocky Mount is to Fayetteville as Afghanistan is to Pakistan?

Note that I am not comparing anywhere in NC to Afghanistan, I'm saying that just because you can think of a crappier place doesn't mean that it's not crappy.

Fayetteville might not be the worst place to live in NC but it's very, very close.

Never knew how nice Fayetteville was until I lived in Goldsboro for two years.

I think it depends on who you ask. Not too bad for a young person. Tons of bars and clubs.

There is also plenty of stuff to do if you are older and don't go to bars and clubs like me.

In all fairness, North Carolina has a number of large-ish (200,000+ cities/urban areas) with very distinctly different personalities. This is a great thing; it makes the entire state stronger and more attractive.

You have cities for hipsters, cities for retirees, cities for academics, cities for tech geeks, cities where manufacturing hasn't completely dies, 'creative class cities', etc.

You also have strong military and patriotic cities, cities what are very family friendly. Cities that lean conservative, cities that lean liberal.

The mixture of these qualities over several different cities is a great thing. As diverse as all of those cities are, they have all grown, they are all interconnected, individually and cumulatively they all attract people and talent and skills and entrepreneurial energy to NC. Fayetteville might be an underdog city to some degree, but it's doing ok, and oised to do a lot better in future decades.

I've never been to Fayetteville, but want to give an example of why I think it stinks: a cop recently kicked a wheelchair tennis player off the tennis courts while she was giving a clinic, because wheels are not allowed on the tennis court.

Really, Fayetteville?
