Carver's Creek State Park is a hidden gem among the development around Fayetteville and Fort Bragg. A little more than a half mile hike from the welcome center is a beautiful piece of property that transports you to a much earlier time in North Carolina's history. The property is more than a thousand acres of pine forest, cypress pond, and a plantation style home complete with a grist mill. Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew caused severe damage to the property which, as of now, has not been repaired. I am sure that with the proper funding and development by the State, Carver Creek State Park could be one of the prettiest parks in the State.

The doors opened on 16 August 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original Test Platoon’s first parachute jump. The museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, a gift shop, and a motion simulator ride that features two experiences. Admission is free, and we do accept donations in the gift shop and in donation boxes in the lobby. The main gallery is designed as a self-guided tour, in chronological order, through the history of airborne and special operations soldiers from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes periodically and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army airborne and special operations units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present.
This place is amazing! If you give something infinite rating, this would be the place. Every high school kid or adult not ever exposed to some history about our airborne and SOG warriors should visit!

This zoo it a neat place to visit when looking for something different. For $12 you can see a wide array of animals from birds, reptiles, tigers and lions, cows and goats, pigs, giraffe,African animals, wolves, and much more. You can buy food to feed the animals which adds another level of interaction. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to tigers, giraffes, and other animals. The cost includes a tractor pulled ride through the back section where they allow you to throw bread to the animals. They come running for the tractor.
It is almost all outdoors and on uneven ground so dress and plan accordingly. Restrooms are porta potties. They have a snack and drink shop along with a little gift shop. It’s a great place for children and adults.

This is a newer Museum but if you have a chance walk on over there, covers the history of the veterans of North Carolina. And the grounds are very well kept.

I did two rooms based on the advice of local owners I know from another room. First, the company is in the middle of nowhere and seems pretty dead, when I booked the room, on a rainy and cold Sunday (when an escape room should be booming) they was no one there other than staff, with myself being the only booking for the room. The first one I did was Cabin in the Woods. I loved the concept of the room, however the execution was bad.And the room seemed cheaply put together. The briefing employee made a big deal to point out not to touch so and so and such and such because it was easily broken to the point when I entered the room (they don't give you a clue for the 1st 20 minutes) I spent 20 minutes searching for something I was supposed to do and it turns out it was something I was afraid to touch due to the briefing. Then another puzzle didn't work well no matter how hard I tried even with the clues given, the game master had to come in the room to help, and even he had a hard time at first. Also, even though I was the only person in the room, there wasn't that many puzzles. A team of 2 or 3 would be good, but a team more than that would quickly get in the way of each other as there just isn't enough to do.
I recently went back this month and in contrast the Mad Hatter room was brilliant. Still no other bookings were there just my group of two and it seemed only 1 employee. Mad Hatter was actually one of the best rooms I have done out of 60+ now. One great concept I've never seen in any other rooms I have done is that you have to use all 5 of your senses to complete the room! Bravo on that! Familiar storyline, but the execution was perfect. Only complaint is the game master gave a very misleading clue that actually stopped us from progressing as we should have.
I want to go back and give the Bomb Squad a try, but I have heard that one group had 3 different "malfunctions", so maybe in a couple of months after all the bugs have been worked out.

Cape Fear Botanical Garden is a premier destination in Fayetteville, NC. We provide an urban oasis for local residents and visitors alike, as well as educational programming and recreational activities to strengthen our community.
Ok, this place is stunningly beautiful now that the renovations are complete and the grounds have grown to maturity. The holiday seasons are especially nice with the added decorations depending on the events.

This trail is paved and used by both pedestrians and cyclists alike. Very peaceful and relaxing to walk along this trail. Covered most of the way but there are some areas where you are not under the trees so bring some sunscreen
I need to get back there again and do the trail. It's a moderately easy walk.

The 1897 Poe House is so named because it was built in the year 1897 and it was the home of the Poe family. The deed of the house is in the name of Josephine Montague Poe, originally from Wake County, who married Edgar Allan Poe in 1880. Edgar Allan Poe was born in Fayetteville and, although has the same name as the famous writer of the macabre, was a local businessman. Learn about life in the first decades of the twentieth century and the changes that defined this era by touring the home of an affluent Fayetteville businessman and his family. Tours highlight women's roles, African American history, children's roles, and technological, economic, and social changes in southern North Carolina and the country during this era. The 1897 Poe House grounds are available to rent for special events.
This was a good free thing to do in Fayetteville (only ask for donations) with a cool museum next door. The house showed a what life was like for the family during the time period.
