Experience Downtown Wake Forest

Although Wake Forest ranks as North Carolina's 26th largest city with a population of just over 31,000, 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.
