Apex, North Carolina

Did you know that Apex gets its name because it's the peak, highest point on the local railway line? Therefore it's "the Peak of Good Living!"

 Apex is a small town that has all the attributes of a large city with that small town feel. Chuck Hinton has raised 3 kids in Apex, and loves that there has always been lots of activity for the whole family - especially the children. "Apex is a jewel to raise a family!" he said.

Here are Chuck's Apex Favorites!

1. Old Fashion 4th of July (FREE), featuring a parade for all ages. Street performers, games, inflatables great food and much more. As well as the Apex Fire Department's Splash area to all to cool off.

2. PeakFest (FREE) is the 1st Saturday of May each year. Main Street in downtown Apex is closed to traffic and WOW it's on! The streets are packed and there is great food, 200+ vendors, street performers, rides, music, dance arts and lots more.

3. Parks, Parks, and More Parks! Multiple parks, some brand new and others built by volunteers and community members that are beyond impressive to look at and play in, miles of greenway walking paths are throughout the town. There are two dog parks and many soccer, ball fields as well as tennis courts and playgrounds are located close to everyone, in addition to picnic areas for both small and large groups. Oh and the Lake at Laura Duncan and all its amenities are ... nothing short of spectacular!

4. Turkey Trot 5K takes place every November and has age groups for children, men, and women to compete

5. There are lots of major, national chain stores like Target, Lowes, Home Depot and Kohls in addition to a movie theatre, but what's more is there are lots of local shops and boutiques in old downtown (Salem Street) Apex. This street alone, festival or not, is a great place to spend an afternoon for lunch, dinner or anything in between. It's simply wonderful.
