What makes Apex “The Peak of Good Living” for its 50,000 plus residents?


  • Its headline as “The Number One Place to Live” in the US by Time/Money magazine, 2015.
  • A prime location in southwestern Wake County, 20 miles from RTP, RDU, and Raleigh.
  • Top-notch schools and affordable homes in a variety of styles.

We think of Apex as a vibrant suburb of Raleigh with a small-town feel. The railroad tracks that earned Apex its name in 1873 still run through the old historic downtown, and were the highest point on the Chatham Railroad Line from Richmond to Jacksonville. A stroll down Salem Street will reveal quaint eateries and coffee shops, antiques and art galleries, boutiques and salons, and the thriving Halle Cultural Arts Center. If you happen to get caught in the rain, here’s a fun fact: The water drains into either the Neuse or Cape Fear River, depending on which side of the street you’re on.

I love Apex because of the downtown. It’s great to be able to have dinner or lunch and pop into a few shops to browse. I also love the Parks and Rec program. They have great camps, classes and sports teams through the parks. Apex Community Park is a great place to go for a walk or run and see some gorgeous herons.

Beyond downtown, Apex has grown to host national chain retailers such as Costco, Wal-Mart, Super Target, Home Depot, and Lowe’s. In the early 2000s, Beaver Creek was developed at the intersection of highways 55 and 64, and offers a 12 stadium cinema as well as plenty of familiar restaurants and shopping.

The Parks and Rec program offers camps, classes and sports for all ages. The town’s festivals and playgrounds, dog and skate parks, trails and lakes, all invite the community outside for year-round fun. On average, the sun shines 221 days of the year with a summer high of 89 and winter low of 30.
