Wake Forest Named #2 Place to Live in NC

Damn, the secret is out. According to this site Wake Forest is named as the number 2 best place to live in North Carolina. Great, just what we need, more people to discover our special charm.

And the Winners Are

According to the data crunching, Wake Forest ranked as one of the top 10 cities in the state based on the following desirable factors:

  • Cost of Living
  • Crime Rate
  • Education
  • Median Household Income
  • Home Values
  • Amenities

The Movoto site said Wake Forest ranked in the top because:

“Not only did Wake Forest tie with Apex for some of the best weather in North Carolina, but they’ve got the parks and outdoor activities to really take advantage of that sunshine—hence their high rank in amenities. Falls Lake State Recreation Area, for example, stretches across 26,000 acres of woodlands and is home to the 12,000-acre Falls Lake.

If the outdoors aren’t your thing, though, don’t worry—Wake Forest also ranked well in their number of barbecue restaurants and churches per capita, which was a portion of its amenities score.. Because like any good southerner knows, Sunday is made for two things: church and barbecue. Okay, three, if you add football.”
