For a few centuries, Carver?s Falls was closed to the public, and it's easy to see how much the area benefited from that solitude. The natural beauty of its forests and the waterfall at its heart have flourished. But today, the tree canopy has been transformed into an aerial playground. Wires cross the sky, connecting tree to tree. Every day, ZipQuest's guides lead birds-eye tours of the pristine landscape on their expansive zipline network or via the Swing Shot that pendulums vertiginously above Carver's Creek. Whether the lighting comes from the sun or helmet-mounted lamps, no fewer than two experienced guides lead guests through Carver's Falls' 2.5-hour course. Adventurers fly down eight ziplines?each designed for a long, leisurely glide or an adrenaline-pumping plunge?while pointing out local flora and fauna. Groups pause only to disembark on high platforms anchored to centuries-old trees. Floating spiral staircases and sky bridges, the longest of which stretches 210 feet, interconnect the platforms. A suspension bridge carries explorers over the falls to a penultimate zipline that runs parallel to its creek. At the end of the run, guests catch their breath while looking through the pictures their camera-wielding guide took.

Fayetteville native Dr. Joseph Catlett and Dr. Kelly Viau, who spent three years providing dental care to troops in the US Air Force, keep teeth in mint condition at Catlett Family Dentistry. They use technology such as low-radiation digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, which allow the doctors to get a clear picture of the teeth and gums without sticking a smartphone in the patient’s mouth. For more extensive dental work, they use CEREC computer-generated porcelain crowns and veneers to cover missing or broken teeth and Invisalign clear aligners to straighten teeth.
