Fuquay-Varina: A Fast-Growing Community of Small-Town Charm

Originally two separate towns, Fuquay Springs and Varina merged in 1963 to form the town of Fuquay-Varina, NC. Located southwest of Raleigh along US Route 401, Fuquay-Varina is a small and charming southern town filled with attractions, amenities, and plenty of friendly neighborhood community. Its proximity to Raleigh and The Triangle has led to tremendous growth in recent years, including the construction of residential communities and commercial areas, but it still retains the small-town spirit and beautiful historic architecture that give it a true unique country charm.
