Experience Fayetteville this week unveiled the 2017 Fayetteville Visitor’s Guide featuring the tourism group’s new branding.

The annual publication highlights some of the city’s most popular attractions and events, and includes profiles of local people who help shape the community.

This year’s guide features Joelle Storet, gallery manager at Fayetteville Underground; Wade Ogle, owner of Block Street Records; Rob and Adrienne Shaunfield, founders and owners of Farmers Table Cafe; and Kirsten Blowers, founder and owner of Riffraff boutique.

The guide also includes information on local artists, restaurants, breweries, shops, trails, and nearby getaways.

Molly Rawn, executive director of Experience Fayetteville, said recent growth in tourism led to a 10 percent increase in requests for visitor’s guides last year, and the number of requests made online was up by 82 percent.

Guides are available at the Fayetteville Visitor Center, located on the Fayetteville square, as well as local hotels and restaurants, and welcome centers across the state. The guide also is available for download at ExperienceFayetteville.com, where requests for a mailed copy also may be made.
