Sandhills Region

This 10-county region, which includes the Fayetteville metropolitan area, was formerly referred to as the Carolina Piney Woods.  The longleaf pine, the state tree, is found throughout this region.  Fort Bragg Army Base, the largest active military base in the country, and the Camp Mackall Army training facility call the Sandhills region home, as does the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina.  The region has a vibrant agricultural heritage, with fruit and produce shipped throughout the state and around the nation, along with forestry, wood products, and livestock.  The downtown districts offer an eclectic mix of locally owned shops and restaurants supported by both residents and visitors, incredible public art, history, and heritage museums, and opportunities for family-friendly fun with festivals, holiday events, farmers markets, and concerts.  The region is a recreation playground, offering world-class golf, equestrian experiences, kayaking and canoeing down the Cape Fear and Lumber rivers, and exploring the Uwharrie National Forest and the Uwharrie River by land or by boat.  Learn about the mystery of the Town Creek Indian Mound, a state archaeological site.  The Sandhills region offers one-of-a-kind experiences just waiting for exploration.
