Welcome to Forest City, North Carolina – “Small Town, Deep Roots.” Forest City brings southern charm and historic preservation together with modern innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Historic downtown features modern boutiques, nostalgic antiques and “mom and pop” eateries.
Every winter, Forest City’s Hometown Holidays celebration lights up Main Street with more than one million lights, an annual tradition since 1930. Classics like a soda fountain, vintage cars and wooden-bat baseball round out the small-town American experience.
Major corporations like the Forest City Facebook Data Center are headquartered on the opposite side of town due to Forest City’s centrally located commercial buildings and sprawling acres of open land.
We invite you to experience this great small town with deep roots. Learn more at www.VisitNCSmallTowns.com
