The Top 5 Best New Communities in Apex

New homes and communities are popping up seemingly everywhere in Apex! But all this residential construction activity isn’t completely surprising: In 2015, Apex was named the #1 Best Place to Live in America by MONEY Magazine, a title that residents are truly proud of. Plus, this area is relatively close to Downtown Raleigh and Research Triangle Park thanks to its proximity to NC-540 and US-1.
