Recently, Fayetteville claimed the top spot on Apartment List’s 10 Best Cities to Live After Service in 2024. According to the rankings, Fayetteville’s location fosters a supportive and understanding community for veterans. “This familiarity with military life makes the transition for veterans smoother, as they find themselves surrounded by peers and institutions that understand their unique experiences and needs,” Apartment List’s entry on Fayetteville says. “Fayetteville boasts a high quality of life with affordable living costs, a variety of outdoor activities, and a rich cultural scene. This combination of a supportive community, career opportunities, and a comfortable lifestyle makes Fayetteville an ideal choice for veterans transitioning to civilian life.”

In fact, Fayetteville has been named “The World’s First Sanctuary for Military Families”. Since the early 1990s, the relationship between the local community in Fayetteville and Fort Liberty has evolved, as the symbiotic bond between the two has solidified. As the locals say, “The people of Fayetteville are committed to watch over those who watch over us.” 

Fayetteville boasts an extensive network of military support organizations that cater specifically to the needs of families dealing with military relocation. These organizations provide an array of services, including counseling, financial assistance, educational support, employment resources, and recreational activities. The efforts of these groups create a nurturing environment where military families feel understood, valued, and empowered. 

For families with children, access to quality education is a top priority. Fayetteville is home to excellent public and private schools that are experienced in accommodating the unique needs of military children. Highcroft residents attend Lake Rim Elementary, Lewis Chapel Middle School, and Seventy-First Senior High. Additionally, the city has programs that assist military families in navigating the education system and ensure a smooth transition for their children. 

The cost of living in Fayetteville is relatively affordable compared to many other towns. This affordability allows families to stretch their budgets further, providing them with financial stability and the ability to invest in their future. Accessible off-base housing options, reasonable utility costs, and affordable healthcare contribute to the overall appeal of Fayetteville as a haven for families of all kinds.
