I moved to Apex, North Carolina when I was 8 from New Jersey. You can imagine it was quite a shocking change, but a good one. At the time, Apex had a small town feel, where you knew many people and everything had easy access. I was able to find community activates to participate in, such as gymnastics. My neighborhood is great, and has annual Christmas parties and sleigh rides in winter and pizza parties and yard sales in the summer. However, Apex has been growing at a rapid rate for many years now, and many things are changing that we as townspeople do not like. Homes are being built where there used to be beautiful woods. Schools are overflowing and classrooms are packed. A Publix is being built right across from an elementary school, where my favorite festive house was. They knocked down a hidden mansion to build another neighborhood. The thing is I do not want to see Apex change. It already has, and it can be argued whether it was for the better or not.
The neighborhoods, schools, and community overall are great. There is a lot of diversity and the area is continuing to see steady growth. New businesses are coming into the area, which is always exciting. Raleigh draws in professional and college sports, along with appreciation for the arts. The surrounding cities/towns allow for diverse experiences. Apex is a family friendly town and is close to so many great things.
Grew up in Apex, NC. Great growing community. Lots of options for food, school and extracurriculars. Very diverse town with lots of fun small town things to do. Downtown Apex is worth a visit!
