The Wake Forest Lifestyle

Selected as the first location for Wake Forest University in the 1830s (the school moved to Winston-Salem in 1956), Wake Forest continues to grow and prosper while maintaining its Southern charm and small-town values.

Because of the town's close proximity to US-1 and I-540, Wake Forest homeowners enjoy quick access to the big-city amenities of Raleigh and employment opportunities in Research Triangle Park. Residents also enjoy the small-town atmosphere and more affordable housing choices. Let us introduce you to this wonderful area of the Triangle.

Shopping & Dining

Wake Forest's quaint downtown features a diverse collection of local restaurants, boutiques, and historic attractions. Throughout the week, residents can catch up with friends over coffee or peruse the shop windows for the latest trends. On Saturdays, the Wake Forest Farmers Market (held at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre) is a popular spot for shopping local.

Outdoor Recreation

With more than 500 acres of public parkland and 50 miles of trails (not including those at Falls Lake State Recreation Area), Wake Forest offers adventures for all ages. Joyner Park hosts the annual Six Sundays in Spring concert series on the grassy lawn of the amphitheater. On hot summer days, Holding Park Aquatic Center and the Taylor Street Park sprayground are the perfect places to cool down.

Wake Forest offers no shortage of fun events to help residents meet their neighbors. "Meet in the Street" kicks off the summertime with a full day of food and live music, "Art After Hours" is a great way to enjoy the local art scene, "Friday Night on White" highlights bands from around the region, and the "Lighting of Wake Forest" ushers in the holiday season in style.
