Originally, visitors from near and far traveled to the quaint town that is today called Fuquay-Varina seeking the healing powers of the Fuquay Mineral Spring. Today, Fuquay-Varina remains a great town for visitors looking for a day-trip adventure or weekend getaway. The town, located just 15 minutes south of Raleigh, has flourished into a vibrant, family-friendly community that has seen its population more than double in the past 10 years to 19,000 citizens. Boasting two beautiful downtown areas (commonly referred to as Varina and Old Fuquay), a colorful history, pedestrian-friendly streets, an excellent quality of life and a strong business community, Fuquay-Varina’s modern amenities mixed with vintage charm make it a special community to visit.
