Hi, we are moving to Fayetteville, NC (I've been tranfered to work at Ft. Bragg). We don't know anything about the area and need to find a children-friendly neighborhood (we have a 3 year old). Information/opinions about daycare-preschools and elementary schools would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Here is a great site for Fayetteville info.

Fayetteville Wants YOU

As I'm sure you have already found out people have strong opinions about Fayetteville. I can assure you there are many nice places to live in the area. I chose to return here after I retired from the USAF and start my real estate career.

please do a search on here for "fayetteville". I've written tons of helpful stuff on Fay. but am too tired right now to do it again! Keep in mind there's lots of negative stuff out there too, but I seriously didnt' encounter much "bad" during the 10 mos I lived there. Avoid a few bad areas/schools and you're all set.

Default Southern Pines

Hi,

When you come down, check out Southern Pines, there is an entrance to Ft Bragg 5 min from the downtown area.

Here is the local paper link just to give you a little more about the Sandhills area.

Scene section of the Southern Pines Pilot (http://www.thepilot.com/scene/ - broken link)

Good luck with your move.

Fayetteville isn't all bad. Many parts of it are very gritty. Other parts are quite nice.

We live in the Hunters Ridge subdivision - it is in a quiet rural area a world away from the scarier parts of Fayetteville. Also worth checking out is Pine Valley - lots of military. Raleigh Road and Long Hill elementary are very good schools.

Good luck!
