So you started planning your trip to Fayetteville because you wanted to enjoy the thrill of a lifetime at our treetop and waterfall adventure (one of best attractions around), but not sure what else there is to do? Don’t worry, we are glad to help you out! Everyone’s favorite attraction and thing to do is eat good food, and there’s plenty to choose from in Fayetteville. For example, Scrub Oaks, which is a unique combination of sports bar and trendy restaurant. Or if you want to try some exotic and delicious cuisine from across the Atlantic, stop at Taste of West Africa. This isn’t just a great place to eat, it’s a dining adventure! For some of our more vegetable liking friends, Sherefe is an award-winning Mediterranean restaurant that specialized in fresh, local ingredients and is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free friendly. Or if you prefer some more classic American food, how can you go wrong with Mash House Brewery? The best place for burgers and steaks, and world-class beer brewed onsite right in the heart of Fayetteville!
If you are planning on staying for a couple days, you probably need somewhere to sleep. The Hilton Garden Inn is located near downtown Fayetteville and only 11 miles from ZipQuest! It also offers complimentary wifi, heated pool and spa, and a fitness room. If you prefer to stay right in the heart of Fayetteville, Holiday Inn is a great choice with an onsite restaurant and an outdoor seasonal pool. The Residence Inn is also a good choice, with free wifi, a pool, patio, and BBQ area.
If you do decide to stay a couple days, you probably want to plan some activities for your fun trip. But what’s there to do? Well the best thing is obviously ZipQuest! But aside from that, Fayetteville has plenty to offer. The Gillis Hill Farms offers fun educational tours, delicious ice cream, wagon rides, and an animal show. Another fun thing to do is pick your own grapes! Visit Auman Vineyards, where you can pick your own set of grapes, or buy pre-picked ones from their roadside farm market. If you love nature, be sure to stop by the Cape Fear Botanical Garden, which ecompasses 79 acres and showcases more than 2,000 varieties of ornamental plants. One of Fayetteville’s most interesting attractions, the Airborne and Special Operations Museum features a lot of exhibits illuminating the long military history of Airborne platoons and Special Ops. If you prefer some indoor entertainment, check out what’s going on at the Crown Complex Arena. It hosts a variety of concerts, sporting events, and performances – from Disney on Ice, to WWF wrestling, to indoor football. If you have some kids with you, and want to entertain them, the Fascinate-U Children’s Museum is a great place to stop by! Here, kids can explore their world in the way that they learn best, through creative role-playing, and interaction with each other and the objects around them.
