What We Love

An Idyllic Downtown

Downtown Wake Forest has many cool districts to fall in love with, and these tree-lined streets have so many activities to enjoy.

Top-Notch Schools

Wake Forest is served by Wake County Public Schools, the state's top rated district.

Shopping and Dining

Wake Forest is close to so many places to eat and have fun—we love Harris Crossing and Over the Falls restaurant!

Ready to Fall in Love with this Charming Town?

There's a lot to love about Wake Forest—in fact, we think it's one of Wake County's best kept secrets. This eclectic town is the original home of Wake Forest University, which makes it a unique melting pot of cultures and things to do. When you're not hitting up all the cool spots downtown, you'll surely be spending some time at nearby Falls Lake. It doesn't matter if you love boating or taking a relaxing hike—it's all within reach when you call Wake Forest home!


Spend the Day at Falls Lake

Want to kick back and enjoy that stunning Carolina blue sky? Falls Lake is the premiere destination in Northern Wake County for those looking to relax and enjoy a weekend on the water. This 12,000+ acre recreation area has so much to do, making it easy for everyone to have some fun in the sun. There are plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails with different difficulty levels, as well as places for camping and picnicking. If you've been dying to take your boat out on the water, there are plenty of spots for that, too!
