The Peak of Good living

When we first moved to North Carolina, we rented a 3 bedroom house in the town of Apex. Apex seemed like a happy medium: not as big and pricey as Cary and not as small and undeveloped as Holly Springs. 

Apex, so called because it is highest point on a portion of the Chatham Railroad which ultimately extends between Richmond,VA and Jacksonville, FL,  is a lovely suburban town on the western edge of Wake County. The Historic part of town, like many in this area, is built around the old train depot (which is now the adorable chamber of commerce compete with picturesque little red caboose).  The railroad was the life line for the tobacco industry which had been vital to this area.

While it's central location to Raleigh, RDU airport and the Research Triangle make it a desirable location,  it is also an area of immense growth because it is both business and family friendly, living up to it's motto "Apex, the Peak of Good Living" 

 Even while expanding it's population and it's borders (with new boundaries being drawn into neighboring Chatham County) Apex has continued to plan carefully to include what families look for in a place they call home. TWO new schools are being constructed (Apex West) Friendship High School which is due to open next year and Scotts Ridge Elementary which just broke ground this summer.

good living is bountiful FREE family friendly leisure activities. The recent construction of 2 new parks are a welcome addition.  The first is Seymour Johnson Athletic Fields which includes areas for Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Tennis as well as a play area for kids

The  second part of this area is the Apex Nature Park which features Nature trails, an  18 hole disc golf course, an adorable little amphitheater which hosts outdoor concerts as well as family movie nights, and finally a TWO ACRE dog park!

These are just the most recent additions to a town already dedicated to  good living with Greenways, lakes, numerous parks like Jaycee Park which hosts little league baseball, soccer and even has permanent club houses for the local Boy Scouts
