The town’s unique name and two downtown layout have drawn more than a few confused looks.
The real obstacle is explaining how to get from the Fuquay side to the Varina side or vice versa.
“If they come in on 401 they don’t understand there is a Varina downtown,” said director Naomi Riley of the Fuquay-Varina Downtown Revitalization Association. “It’s the same thing if they come in on (N.C.) 55. They don’t understand we have a downtown on the Fuquay side.”It's a legitimate need. I've struggled trying to give directions to visitors trying to get from one side of town to the other.
