Movoto.com has assembled a list of the top five best places to retire in the Raleigh Area. Wake Forest came in a proud #2.
“According to Anderson, Wake Forest is a top pick for retirees. With a charming, historic downtown full of boutique shopping, dining, and a farmers market, it’s easy to see why.
New construction ranch style homes and townhouses are common in Wake Forest, as are charming Craftsman homes in the historic district. For retirees who want a close knit community, Anderson recommends Crossings at Heritage, a retirement community with a library, fitness center, and game room on site.
Retirees who want to spend their time hitting the links will have plenty of options in Wake Forest, between Heritage Golf Club, Brevofield Golf Links, and Paschal Golf Club. Or, tap into your artsy side with a class or workshop at the Wake Forest Renaissance Center for the Arts, or enjoy one of the center’s events as an audience member.”
