Fayetteville Area CVB Showcases Local Attractions in New Video Series

Cumberland Country Lures New Tourists With A Fresh Perspective

May 2016

Each video follows a group of avid travelers on a trip around Cumberland County, embarking on activities such as zip lining at ZipQuest, miniature golfing at the Putt-Putt Fun Center, and hiking trails at Carver’s Creek State Park.  Another video shows an athletic trio shooting paintball at Black Ops Paintball, running on the scenic Cape Fear River Trail, and wake boarding at the Smith Lake Recreational Area.  The other videos highlight the scaling boulders at North Carolina’s largest indoor rock climbing facility The Climbing Place, skeet shooting at the Fort Bragg Clay Target Center, and flying at the Paraclete XP SkyVenture, as well as other popular local spots. 

“Our community is known as America’s Hometown and for its rich military history,” explains John Meroski, CEO of the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.  “We wanted these videos to be three dimensional and show another side of our diverse community in order to demonstrate what Cumberland County has to offer travelers of all ages.”

The FACVB teamed up with the renowned University of North Carolina (UNC) Drumline to create original scores for each of the five videos in the series.  The upbeat drums perfectly complement the action-packed videos, with a distinct cadence that echoes Fayetteville’s unique patriotic spirit.  UNC has a longstanding relationship with Cumberland County,  as the school was originally chartered in Fayetteville in 1789.

These new videos are just the latest installment in FACVB’s unique campaign to shed some light on the diversity of Cumberland County.  Additional initiatives include an active sports marketing campaign to attract large scale sporting events and tournaments to the area, a panoramic new advertising campaign and a new mobile-friendly Cultural Heritage Trails website.
