The rudest people and awful drivers. Elevation Church was nice and the PNC was great for the hurricanes game. The parking was awful, so many drunk drivers almost hit our car for speeding out of their parking spot.

I was amazed at all that was available in Wake Forest. Sadly, we weren't there for fun, but there was quite a bit available.
