Wake Forest Won't Lose Its Charm

Like many Raleigh suburbs, Wake Forest has seen tremendous growth in recent decades, in part due to its proximity to Research Triangle Park. Recently, Wake Forest became one of the top 10 fastest growing communities in North Carolina. Despite the influx of new residents and surge in new homes, Wake Forest has not lost its identity as a small town.

Wake Forest's quaint downtown is still the community's center. It's not uncommon to see your neighbors browsing shop windows, eating at a local restaurant, or shopping for fresh produce at the Farmers' Market. Free annual events, from the Mardi Gras Street Festival in the spring to the Wake Forest Christmas Parade in the winter, bring residents together for old-fashioned community fun.
