We are a late 30s couple with 2 children, aged 12 and 7, that are thinking about moving from Fort Mill, SC (outside of Charlotte) this summer. We know virtually nothing about the area, so locals, please fill us in. Schools, grocery stores, location, safety, homes, subdivisions, etc.

Thanks

Why not search for the answers to a very similar question from a week or two ago and also search for lots of information about Wake Forest on this forum.

Then come back and ask specific questions if you have them.

Your questions are very broad, and when they are that broad, they are a bit overwhelming to answer. It's like saying, "Write me a book about Wake Forest."

Wake Forest is nice. It's growing. Sweet little downtown. Good town for kids. Drivetime down Capital to 540 or downtown Raleigh can be very slow in the morning. Wake Forest is one of the fastest-growing small towns in the country, so it won't be small for long.

Wake Forest.

Within the town limits: quaint, picturesque, small town look and feel. Nice parks with paved streets. Street lights on most streets. Shopping with a local flair and with national chains. One can get fresh baked bread or even donuts shaped tires for ones car. One can find antiques as well as 2010 automobiles!

It has an elementary, middle and High School. But don't be confused with a neighborhood school as your children may or may not go to the Wake Forest schools at t'all.

Grocery chains are abundant and over lapping. Most are regional chains and some span the nation such as Walmart and Target. Choice is selective and selection narrows choices!

Major roadways bisect the town area from Rt 1 (N-S) Rt 98 (E-W) to name the majors while missing the minors.

Safe as any place not broken into and as un safe as a broken into home. Safety is a relative attribute.

Homes. Within the Wake Forest Zip code which includes the Town of as well as the areas near the town have over 780 listing from $4.2M down to much much much lower than that. They come with a postage stamp size yard up to several acres. There are small rolling hills spotted with trees and pastures. There are historic homes as well as ones not even done yet! Choice is abundant!

There are town parks and a town pool.

There is much to see and even much-er to do if I may use much-er as a word.

Come take a look see and see what you look,
you may just like what you see!

But living in Wake Forest I am biased none the less.
I also came and looked what I saw and saw what I looked
and bought!

So let me be the first to say Welcome to Wake Forest, Wake Counties Forest of the north!
