Fuquay-Varina Make Me Want More

Living here in Fuquay-Varina reminds me of an old storybook country living survival guide. Never heard of one? Well, here goes. I will take the time to explain to you how living in a city such as this relates to the above stated storybook. Everyone should know of southern charm and let me tell you a quick story about it here.

While I believe the downtown park makes for an adventurist twist, we will mention the fact that there is a church on almost every corner. I take my time through turns and keep an eye out for deer over near that main highway west. If you continue thinking that southern hospitality is a thing of the past, I will be happy to remind you that it isn't.

Going to your local grocer, or farmers market makes for a familiar ride as everyone knows you by name. The older folks know you by face and then when you get closer, they will call out your name very loudly. Keep in mind, that southern charm my friend.
