Experience Downtown Wake Forest

Where Quaint Meets Cool

From art galleries and specialty shops to coffee companies and consignment 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 entertainment options, so be sure to visit us and experience all Wake Forest's Renaissance Area has to offer.
