If you’re interested in all that North Carolina’s Triangle area has to offer, but don’t find the bustle of a city appealing, you’ll find no lovelier small town than Apex. Recently ranked by Money Magazine as one of the Best Places to Live in the U.S., Apex is the best of both worlds: small-town charm with access to big city amenities. Residents of Cambridge Village of Apex reap the benefits of small-town living, in an affordable upscale retirement village with supportive services to help them live their best lives.

What makes Apex so special? It’s a turn-of-the-century railroad town, with more than 60 historic buildings dating from 1870 to 1940. As you stroll through the pedestrian-friendly downtown, you’ll enjoy thriving businesses housed in colorfully restored buildings. Downtown, you can visit antique shops and specialty shops in the shopping district, dine at local restaurants and cafes, or just take in the sights.

Are you a history buff? You’ll find sightseeing opportunities on historic Hughes and Salem Streets, in a district recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the Apex Union Depot, circa-1914, a stunning example of Victorian architecture.  Interested in the arts? Visit the Halle Cultural Arts Center, featuring three art galleries and a 150-seat theater where you can enjoy small-town productions.

If you prefer the great outdoors, there’s no better place to be. Relax in the beautiful green spaces at Apex Community Park, visit one of the area’s lakes, or play golf at one of its many top-rated golf courses. You can also visit the Apex Farmer’s Market or enjoy local beer and wine in the sunshine when you visit one of Apex’s breweries or vineyards.

When you tire of the local amenities, Raleigh is just a short car ride away. There, you can visit the North Carolina Museum of Art or take in a sporting event at PNC Arena. Stroll through a park, enjoy what’s blooming at JC Raulston Arboretum, or dine at some of North Carolina’s finest restaurants.
