Today's New York Times devotes its weekly "36 Hours" travel feature to Fayetteville.
First stop? George's Majestic Lounge on a Friday afternoon, followed by dinner at Hugo's. (Those are great classic choices. The writer must have done her research.)
Then the Farmer's Market on the square Saturday morning, and on to see the sights from there. The hotel choices (Inn at Carnall Hall, Radisson and Inn at the Mill) also are spot-on.
