If you are considering a home in the Raleigh /Research Triangle area of North Carolina, the city of Apex can be a great choice. This city of just over 40,000 people is close to the many features of the Raleigh area yet retains a distinct personality all its own.
Early beginnings of Apex as a railroad town can still be seen. The Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center are now housed in what was originally Apex Union Depot. This building has many of the original features including ticket windows, the original switchmen’s lanterns and a double fireplace.
The community is home to more than one dozen elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to public schools, there are also several private schools.
Apex is minutes away from I-40 and Raleigh, making it a good choice for anyone that works there but wants the welcoming atmosphere of a smaller town. It is close to shopping and dining in Raleigh but without the congestion and other issues usually found in larger cities. The downtown area of Apex is only about 8 miles away from Raleigh-Durham Airport, making it a good choice for anyone that flies often.
One of the best features about living in Apex is that it tends to place well on rankings as to quality of life. CNN/Money Magazine placed it 9th in the best places to live in the United States in 2009 and 2013. And in 2015, it was voted #1 Small Town to Live In.
