We have won the Number 1 Best Place to Live in America by Fortune Magazine! For good reason, we have great parks and lots of things to do, low crime, great schools and if you live here you can easily get to Research Triangle Park or Raleigh Durham Airport. We are close to downtown Raleigh and Durham where there are great museums too.

To give you an example of how low the crime is here: On the 4th of July in downtown Apex there is a parade. The kids line up their scooters and wagons and bikes then they go play at the event booths and rides. Hours later when the parade begins they head back to where they left their bikes etc and THEY ARE ALL THERE, no one has stolen anything! It's a great community.
