Fuquay-Varina was originally a resort town centered about the Fuquay Mineral Spring Park, which attracted many visitors to come and experience the legendary healing powers of the water. Today you can still visit the park to take a pleasant walk, have a picnic or have a sip of the spring water. The town has several historic sites and buildings which you can visit at the Fuquay-Varina Museum Complex and on a walking tour of the historic district. During the summer months children can have loads of fun at the South Park Splash Pad. When you have worked up a thirst you can head to a couple of the town’s craft breweries or make your way to the Stick Boy Bakery for the best cup of coffee in town. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.

Like many craft breweries the Fainting Goat Brewing Company started off in as one man’s passion for brewing great beer in his kitchen/garage. After teaming up with a business-savvy friend, the micro-brewing business moved out of the garage and into their Parrish Drive Brewery. Today the Fainting Goat welcomes locals and visitors to come and find out all about what goes into making a fine artisanal beer. At the Tap Room on Main Street you can look forward to tasting a variety of brilliant core brews including American Pale Ale, Pomegranate Witbier, Hefeweizen and IPA’s as well as a rotation selection of seasonal additions.
