Wake Forest is a storied little town located just north of
Raleigh. Formerly the home of Wake Forest University it is now home to the Southeastern
Baptist Theological Seminary which has beautiful grounds that are sometimes
used for weddings. There is so much for the outdoor enthusiast in Wake Forest,
including parks, greenways, walking trails, playgrounds, ball fields, picnic
areas, a new lawn-amphitheater and several golf courses.
There’s a lovely downtown area with shopping and restaurants
and a very “hometown feel”. There’s a farmer’s market for fresh fruits and
vegetables weekly. Downtown Wake Forest is home to several locally-owned great
restaurants as well.
The people who make up the population of Wake Forest boast
lots of civic pride and the 4th of July is celebrated with a two day
party, including fireworks and a parade that is all arranged by volunteers.
There’s an annual Christmas Parade every year that is highly anticipated as
Wake Forest residents attend the highly-rated Wake County schools and there are several options available, from the traditional calendar to year-round schools. There are also private schools available in the area.
The Factory, a former factory turned into a destination, is
a fun area for kids as well as grownups and for sports as well as shopping and
dining. It offers ice-skating, hockey, soccer, go-karting, basketball courts,
volleyball and even “blast-ball” to teach introductory baseball and softball to
boys and girls. There are great local shops and restaurants on the grounds.
It’s an easy commute from Wake Forest to the Raleigh-Durham
International Airport and also to Research Triangle Park or “RTP”.
