What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Apex

I find it to be the most neighborly community in Apex. I also love the amount of outdoor space they've kept that just so happens to be near my house. Kids and families have an entire soccer field to play in.

Like going to restaurant and shopping from store . My kids and my wife like and chose to live here.when to travel we need to be afraid.

Going to walks with the many greenways in the area. There are many things to do in the surrounding towns.

kids would like to go to lake, sometimes in the evening they want to play in the playground, museum,

We have easy access to greenways and parks. The neighborhood is very family and pet friendly. Our favorite local hangout within a mile of our house that we go to often for food and entertainment.

All About

Living in Apex, NC

Like many regions on the East Coast, the areas that surround apartments in the Raleigh metro area of North Carolina are packed with history. From the old puritanical churches in New England to the sprawling plantations through Georgia, evidence of American history and its influence is still alive up and down the Atlantic seaboard. But few residents are lucky enough to reside a community repeatedly named one of the best places to live in the U.S., in part because of its preservation of its treasured history. Such is the case with those who rent apartments in Apex, North Carolina.

In 2007, Money Magazine named the small-town, dotted with Apex apartments, the 14th Best Place to Live in the U.S. Its appeal is immediately obvious in the historic flavor of the town. A renovation project has restored the downtown area, giving a glimpse into the past. Since the project, the area became listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a premier model of the atmosphere of a railroad town at the turn of the century.

The result of the renovation project has been the source of appreciation by renters with Apex apartments. While intent of keeping Apex cozy and quaint, those with apartments in Apex have also ensured a thriving community; the town has previously been named North Carolina's top small town in terms of economic strength, according to Business North Carolina magazine.
