Best Place to Live in America (Money, 2015)

Small-Town Apex Will Steal Your Heart

There’s Always Something to Celebrate

Downtown Apex alone hosts about one festival a month, and there are even more events happening throughout the town on any given weekend. As heritage is important to Apex residents, cultural events are the most popular, from Apex Founders Day in March to the Apex Latino Arts Festival in June. When Apex was named #1 Best Place to Live in 2015, the town celebrated with Peak-a-Palooza. Other popular events you don’t want to miss include Peakfest, Peak City Pig Fest, and Christmas on Salem Street.

Spend a Day at the Lake

If you want to spend a day at the beach but don’t want to drive more than an hour, head to Jordan Lake in Apex. This reservoir encompasses 14,000 acres and is located right off of US-64, about 15 minutes from Downtown Apex. Camping, boating, fishing, swimming, and hiking are among the many popular activities at the lake, which offers more than 1,000 campsites, 14 miles of hiking trails, and several beaches. If you happen to be at the lake on the first Saturday in October, you don’t want to miss Heritage Day.
