There's So Much to LOVE in Fuquay-Varina!

Specialty Shops 

With more than 30 distinctive shops all under one roof, the Shoppes on Main are a small slice of Fuquay-Varina's unique shopping scene. At these Main Street stores, you'll find everything from upscale boutique items to handmade arts and crafts. No matter where you shop here, you're bound to buy something that will have everyone asking, "Wait, where did you get that from?" And to snag a piece straight from someone else's closet, then you can check out the vintage finds at Bostic and Wilson or K'nB's Marketplace. 

Downtown District 

A part of the NC Main Street Program, Fuquay-Varina has worked hard to preserve the historic attractions in its downtown district while also revitalizing it for modern-day enjoyment. Experience a blast from the past at Ashworth Park, where you'll find the town's first post office, school house, and caboose. Jump-start your day exploring downtown Fuquay-Varina with a fresh smoothie from Juice Haus, then craft your day's ideal itinerary over a round of local brews from Aviator Tap House. 

Parks & Recreation 

The Fuquay-Varina Parks and Recreation Department maintains more than 20 parks across 500 acres scattered throughout town. With plenty of parks to explore, it can be hard to choose which one to visit first—but we'll just say, a trip to the Fuquay-Varina Mineral Spring Park is a must. Since the mid-19th century, these springs have held the reputation of having healing powers, supposedly having cured more than 200 people hundreds of years ago.  

Local Eateries 

Start your Fuquay-Varina food tour at The Mill espresso bar, then come back at the end of the day to try their craft beer selection. Indulge in Italian classics at Anna's Pizzeria or have dinner at a higher-end Italian restaurant, Garibaldi. Don't be surprised if you're on a sugar high after your day diving into the town's dining scene since sweet treats are sold at every turn. Right across from The Mill, you'll find Chocolate Fix where you can get everything from chocolate-covered potato chips to gourmet chocolates.
