Wake Forest has the best of both worlds. As a smaller town located north of Raleigh, North Carolina, and the original home of Wake Forest University, it's close to the city yet retains its small-town quietness and charm. But, don't mistake that serenity for inactivity. Wake Forest is vibrant in many ways, starting with a historic downtown and an interesting restaurant scene. Some of the common cuisine types available are classic and contemporary American meals, Southern comfort food, pan-Asian foods and authentic Mexican dishes. Checking out the historic downtown area and its numerous locally owned cafes and restaurants is definitely worthwhile. For an elegant evening out, choose a precisely cooked steak at a classic steakhouse accompanied by a baked potato or creamed spinach, or try a pan-Asian restaurant for a spicy kung pao chicken or Thai red coconut curry.
