Experience Downtown Wake Forest
Where Quaint Meets Cool
There’s a certain feeling you get in our downtown. A charming, stylish, soulful kind of edginess with ambience, atmosphere and aura.
From art galleries and specialty shops to coffee companies and clothing boutiques, Downtown Wake Forest is a vibrant, charming, historical and happening place to visit.
Although Wake Forest ranks as North Carolina's 22nd largest city with a population of just over 48,000, our downtown, or Renaissance Area, is quaint, walkable and full of friendly, small-town appeal.
Downtown Wake Forest offers an array of wonderful dining, shopping and nightlife options, so be sure to visit us and experience all that Wake Forest's Renaissance Area has to offer.
