Strong Community Spirit & Unique Attractions in Wake Forest

The popularity of Wake Forest is in the numbers: in 2000, the population was around 12,600. By 2010, that number had leaped to about 30,230, and only three years later, it had risen to almost 35,000. And it’s easy to see the appeal: Wake Forest is in the perfect position for easy access to the rest of the Triangle, while still offering loads of shopping, culture, sports, and entertainment.

There’s a strong community spirit in Wake Forest, too; residents are proud of their homes and their town. There’s always a celebration happening, from the “Six Sundays in Spring” or the “Meet in the Street” festival to other events loading the calendar. This hot spot is a home owner’s dream.
