Fayetteville is a small place (census-designated place) located in Franklin County in south-central Pennsylvania. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,774 residents. Fayetteville is part of the scenic Cumberland Valley, which is a constituent valley of the Great Appalachian Valley. The Cumberland Valley is bound on the west and north by the Ridge and Valley Appalachians, to the east and south by South Mountain, to the northeast by the Susquehanna River at Harrisburg and to the south by the Potomac River. There is a portion of Cumberland Valley residing in Maryland that is sometimes referred to as the Hagerstown Valley. Fayetteville offers abundant outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, birdwatching and kayaking. There are guided tours and scenic drives that offer breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Every season has something to offer in Fayetteville, but autumn is an especially beautiful time with the changing of the leaves. From fall festivals to apple picking, wine tours, hay rides, pick-your-own pumpkins and corn mazes - it's all here in the Cumberland Valley. Other attractions near Fayetteville are museums, including a Rolls Royce Museum, historic spots and historical walking tours of some of the surrounding towns. Take your pick!
