Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Wake Forest, NC discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Wake Forest hotel for each day and each star rating category.

New England-raised physician Dr. Calvin Jones became Wake Forest's first settler when he bought 615 acres of forest land there in 1832. He turned the land into a plantation and worked as a doctor and local postmaster from his home for more than a decade until he decided to relocate west. Dr. Jones persuaded his friend John Purefoy, a Baptist minister, to purchase his land to establish the Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute. Boys as young as 12 attended the institute, trading manual labor for religious education. The institute would later become Wake Forest College.

Wake Forest's population began to grow rapidly in the 1840s, with the establishment of a railroad depot in nearby Forestville. The depot moved even closer to Wake Forest in the mid-1870s, stimulating even more economic and population growth. In 1880, the area was officially incorporated as the Town of Wake Forest College. The word college was dropped from the town's title in 1909.

Wake Forest has continued to grow through the decades. At the 2000 census, Wake Forest was home to approximately 12,600 people. By the 2010 census, its population had more than doubled to over 30,000 residents. As Wake Forest continues to grow, it's infrastructure is always improving for residents and visitors alike. New restaurants and stores complement the parks and historic buildings that keep tourists coming back.

When to Visit Wake Forest, NC

Wake Forest's humid, subtropical climate makes summers a steamy affair. Nights in the low 80s and beyond are common, although the humidity can make it feel much warmer. Winters are cool but more comfortable than in many American cities, with daytime temps regularly hovering around the low to mid-50s. If your heart is set on a winter visit, participating in Christmas activities can help you stay warm.

Spring is the ideal time to visit Wake Forest, with its warm weather and dry days and nights. Many people save their travel for the longer summer break, so spring is often a little quieter in Wake Forest. This is reflected in lower accommodation prices.

Fall temperatures are also pleasant, however, rain showers can sometimes dampen vacation plans during September. Some say it's worth risking the rain to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage in Wake Forest's parks. It'll be drier during November, but also much colder with night temps often hovering around the 40s and 50s. Bring a warm coat if you're traveling so close to winter.
