Welcome to Apex

Named the #1 place to live in the country by Money Magazine in August 2015, Apex has all the things you'd expect: a charming downtown, top-notch schools, and the kind of community spirit that draws 15,000 people, or more than a third of the population, to the annual PeakFest street fair.

The community has also managed to retain its close-knit vibe, even as the population has grown, with events like a weekly farmers' market and an annual jazz festival. The just-opened Apex Friendship High School, with cutting-edge technology like 70-inch monitors in every classroom and a 3-D printer, relieves overcrowding at Apex High.

The Apex Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources department manages many parks, greenways, and sports programs, and even a skate park near downtown.

Major parks include:
 
Jordan Lake State Recreation Area in Apex is a collective of nine access areas scattered around the shoreline of this undeveloped, 14,000-acre reservoir. More than 1,000 campsites among five of the access areas offer a range of outdoor experiences from RV hookups to primitive tent camping and group camps. There are seven swim beaches in the recreation area and a number of boating ramps, with some swim areas and ramps reserved for campers. Nearly 14 miles of hiking trails wind across the hilly lakeshore, with most of them offering easy, brief hikes perfect for family outings. Spotting bald eagles and osprey is just one of many opportunities to view wildlife, and the lake’s ecology is further explored in the visitor center exhibit hall.
