Apex: The Ideal Place to Settle Down

In 2013, CNN/Money magazine ranked Apex ninth on its list of best places to live in the United States. Downtown Apex houses a plethora of antique and specialty gift shops, as well as restaurants which include the award-winning Anna's Pizzeria. Residents are able to become tourists in their own city with excursions of the historic Hughes and Salem streets. While you're there, don't forget to visit the Apex Union Depot, a railroad station formed in 1914. Beaver Creek Commons/Crossings are also available for any shopping fanatic. Crave the excitement of a larger city? Apex is a mere 20 minutes away from downtown Raleigh, the capital and cultural hub of North Carolina.
