REAL LIFE IN RALEIGH 

Fayetteville, NC has tons of Fall fun!

Fayetteville, NC is famous for a few things -- its rich military history, J.Cole and me. I am technically not from there but it's the closest big city to my hometown, so I claim it, alright?! 

Dubbed "America's Hometown", Fayetteville has a ton of activities happening this October. Aside from Nature Connects at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden and Fayetteville Comic Con, there is a whole slew of fun to be had!
