Loving Life In Wake Forest, NC
Relocating from New York City three years ago took some adjustment and once settled in Wake Forest I was able to breath a little bit easier. The pace is something you immediately notice...you are not racing from subway or train, clawing your way up from under-ground into your office-in-the-sky in Manhattan. Here in Wake Forest you are going to hop in your car, leisurely drive to your office, probably stopping for a coffee at one of the local establishments and arriving to work, calm, cool and collected to start your day, it's a big difference. We have wonderful, parks and greenway's to enjoy the beautiful weather, walking paths and a darling Historic Downtown area that begs you to come "sit a spell" You had better get used to the extra "sweet tea" because everyone will offer you a cup; that's what we do. We are perfectly located just 25 minutes North of the capitol building in downtown Raleigh, 2.5 hours from the coast and 3 hours to the mountains, so if you really wanted to be at the beach and the mountains in the same day (surf then ski) you really could. There are plenty of waterways to enjoy Kayaking, Canoeing or fishing around the greater Triangle area. We have culture too, just a short drive to downtown Raleigh or Durham there are; museums, world-renowned performing arts centers and wonderful gardens!
I could go on and on, the best thing...the work-life balance, you realize you can still get in a full work day, not have a two hour commute (each way) and enjoy your family or free time. Come for a visit and "sit a spell" I bet you'll stay!!
