Come Explore Life in Apex

Located just southwest of Cary, North Carolina is the historic town of Apex. First settled in the late 1800s, Apex is one of the best-preserved railroad towns in North Carolina. “Apex” means “the highest point,” and this town derives its name from the fact that it was the highest point on the Chatham Railroad.You’ll feel the charm immediately as you bypass the chain restaurants and strip malls. Residents have taken this name to heart, adopting “The Peak of Good Living” as the town motto. The motto refers to more than just elevation, though. Apex consistently appears in various national publications’ lists of the best places in the country to live.  Locals enjoy taking in a show at the Halle Cultural Arts Center, often referred to as the “Jewel of Downtown Apex.” You’ll want to log onto the Apex Downtown’s Website to see what else might be happening. Spring through Fall, local produce, eggs, meat, and more are on offer every Saturday at the Apex Farmers Market.
