Fayetteville’s outdoor activities allow you to soak in the sun regardless of your summer vacation budget. But what are the best things to do in the heart of North Carolina?
With so many summer activities in Fayetteville, it’s hard to know where to start.
Our guide will help you get around. Read on to learn about some of the top things to do outdoors in Fayetteville this summer.
Black Ops Paintball
Take an adrenaline shot this summer by playing several rounds of paintball and airsoft on Black Ops Paintball courses. With 300 acres of property and an array of arenas to play on, there’s plenty of room to spend a good part of your day here. Play in the woods or in their hyper ball field. Pack a picnic and make sure to bring lots of water; you’ll need it!
Axes & X’s Axe Throwing Range
If axes are more your thing, check out Axes & X’s Axe Throwing Range. Though this may not pack the same rush of adrenaline as paintball or shooting a gun, it’s enough to still provide an axe-iting adventure outdoors. Compete with friends and family by throwing axes at a target to gain points. It’s better than your average putt-putt night tournament, and you can even join a league to build your throwing skills. Enjoy the fresh outdoors and get axeing!
Cape Fear Botanical Gardens
Spending time in nature can be very therapeutic. Get some free therapy this summer by visiting the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens. It boasts an impressive 80 acres of beautiful flowers, plants, and dirt trails. Found in 1989, this gorgeous Fayetteville attraction offers many opportunities to smell the flowers and learn about plants through guided tours, camps, adult workshops, hands-on projects, and more.
Flying Q Farms
You don’t have to be an expert rider to enjoy the wonders of horseback riding. At Flying Q Farms, you and your little ones can spend quality time together riding horses with their highly experienced teachers. Take your partner on a lovely guided tour at sunset and hear about the unique features of Lake Sequoyah Park. Flying Q Farms is a wonderful way to experience horseback riding and spend a peaceful summer day with one of nature’s majestic animals.
Summer time can get pretty hot, but that doesn’t mean you need to stay indoors. You can relax and enjoy the breeze in the bleachers of Segra Stadium. This stadium was built in 2019 and has already seen plenty of amazing events like the Eastern NC Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Pecktoberfest (an annual beer festival featuring local crafts), and the Fayetteville Holiday Lights. However, catching an upcoming game of the Fayetteville Woodpeckers will always be the main event.
A list of things to do outdoors this summer wouldn’t be complete without a water wonderland. For that, we’re taking you to the Yakalacky Outfitters. You’ll find all of the equipment you need in 3 different lakeside locations: Cape Fear River, Hope Mills, and Lake Rim. Whichever end you start from, you and your family can paddle through the waterways by kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. Not big on the more active sports? No problem! Grab some bait and fish your worries away on this tranquil lake.
