Wade is a nice small town in North Carolina. It is right outside of the larger city, Fayetteville, so it is close to stores and work, but far enough away that it isn't crowded. The small town is clean and cozy with quaint buildings and friendly people.

My favorite experience in Wade, NC is the rural area. There is a lot of farmland and it is exciting to see the different types of crops planted all year round.
Wade is a nice place to live. The people are friendly and there is a nice feel to the neighborhood. There is a nice park with a walking track, ball fields, and playground equipment.
