"Apex has dozens of parks, miles of greenway trails, bustling shopping centers, several breweries, and a full calendar of festivals and community events. But if you're looking for something fun to do out of town, you don't have to travel far to Downtown Raleigh, Jordan Lake or Falls Lake, or North Carolina's beach and mountains."
