Review of Wake Forest, North Carolina

Great Place to Work and Live, BUT...
Star Rating - 10/15/2010
The Triangle is a great place to work and live, more reasonable than the North but more expensive than most places in the South. We live in a beautiful development-Heritage, which has various neighborhoods with a golf course and pond. But there does not seem to be much to do here unless you are into college sports; there are no amusement parks, water parks, zoos or other "crowd pleasers", for that you have to go to Charlotte or Virginia. I am very unhappy with the Wake County school system; they bus the kids all over the place to achieve economic and socio fairness-my daughter went to a horrible school last year, the School Board voted to end this practice but a group spearheaded by one board member did an end run and they have caved. Next year, they will go back to the practice of bussing. I do not intend to be here for that. MDH is a consultant, right now based in SoCal, we can live anywhere, we are looking for a new location.
