Overview of Apex

Apex is hailed as The Peak of Good Living. The city features a small-town environment filled with southern character and inviting residents. Nestled between the Neuse River and Cape Fear River in southwestern Wake County, the city is located just south of The Triangle - a nickname for the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill region. Apex gives residents an ideal opportunity to work, study, and play in these dynamic cities. Look for Apex apartments for rent, and join more than 38,000 residents who enjoy the southern charm of this North Carolina town. 

Living in Apex, NC

Apex was settled in 1867 as the highest point, or "apex" on the Chatham Railroad between Jacksonville, Florida, and Richmond, Virginia. Despite slow growth rates in the succeeding decades, the city became a railroad station and shipping point for tar, turpentine and lumber because of the abundant pine forests nearby. The city faced more setbacks during the Depression-era, but came out with a bang in the 1950s when North Carolina's Research Triangle Park generated significant residential development in Apex. The city has always maintained its small-town atmosphere, which is extremely important to local residents. Apex also features a historic district that has been beautifully maintained even through the city's downtown restoration project.

Apex Work and Study

While there are no standard college opportunities located in Apex, central North Carolina is home to some of the finest universities in the country. The city of Durham, home to Duke University and North Carolina Central University, is 22 miles away. The prestigious University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is just 24 miles northwest of Apex. Residents here take advantage of the educational opportunities next door in Raleigh, including Meredith College, North Carolina State University, Peace College and Shaw University.

Because of the city's location just south of The Triangle of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, Apex is home to many booming industries. The region is famed for research in many different fields including manufacturing and healthcare. Most residents here work in the traditional office environment, with 81 percent of residents holding management, sales and office jobs. Science, administration, education and social services encompass 38 percent of these positions, with an additional 16 percent of workers holding jobs in the manufacturing sector. Apex also has many blue collar positions to offer, as 7 percent of local residents hold positions in the service industry.

Rentals in Apex, NC and Cost of Living

Apex residents enjoy the serenity of life in North Carolina without paying very high rent prices. According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, the average apartment here costs $947 a month. That's only approximately $100 more than the national average even though the area is one of the most prosperous regions in the South. Apex also received a cost of living index of 95.9 which is slightly less than the national average rate of 100. With historical attractions and pristine surroundings, apartments in Apex are sure to please.

Apex Attractions and Special Events

Families of all ages enjoy the annual Apex Rotary Club's Christmas parade, which takes place on the first Saturday in September. Local merchants, scout troops, antique cars, schools and floats are showcased alongside a jolly Santa Claus to help ring in the holiday season. The Apex Peak Fest, the largest public event in the city, enlivens downtown, and allows residents to celebrate artists who have deep roots in the local community. With many traditional attractions typically found at a fair, Peak Fest is also a family-friendly event. Apex residents also come together for the annual Turkey Trot 5K, with a trail heading through the park and around the scenic local lake. Participants can sign up in recreational and competitive divisions, making the Turkey Trot 5K accessible to residents of all fitness levels.
