Apex Named Best Place to Live in the U.S.

Apex: 2015 Best Place to LiveApex is living up to its name! Money Magazine recently named the growing Triangle town the 2015 Best Place to Live in the U.S.

Close proximity to the Research Triangle Park tech hub and bustling cities like Raleigh and Durham, along with well-preserved small-town charm, and much more, Apex really does have it all.

Money Magazine highlights the top town’s assets including:

“Apex has all the things you’d expect in the No. 1 place to live: a charming downtown, top-notch schools, and the kind of community spirit that draws 15,000 people, or more than a third of the population, to the annual PeakFest street fair. It also has something else: high-paying tech-industry jobs that help make the quality of life here second to none. And unlike that other technology hub on the West Coast, Apex is still affordable. A three-bedroom home costs an average of $265,000, vs. more than $1 million for a comparable house in Silicon Valley.

… With so many attractive qualities, Apex has seen its population double since 2000. The town has taken steps to address the rapid growth, including a new toll road that cut the commute time to Research Triangle in half, to 20 minutes. And the just-opened Apex Friendship High School, with cutting-edge technology like 70-inch monitors in every classroom and 3-D printers, relieves overcrowding at Apex High.”
