Downtown Apex is a Great Triangle NC Destination for
Unique Dining, Shops, Boutiques, Services, and Festivals
Happy 2017 from Downtown Apex, North Carolina!Happy New Year! The holidays are over in the NC Triangle, and many folks have had their fill of big box stores, chain restaurants, strip malls, crowds, and traffic. However, most of us still like to do a little casual shopping for unique fashions and accessories, home décor, antiques, or gifts, and also enjoy a nice lunch or dinner in the same place. Perhaps the best part about doing that all in #DowntownApexNC is parking once and doing zero driving to get anywhere. Just remember, awesome local shopping and dining are always around the corner in Downtown Apex NC, and you can also get your hair or nails done, or get a massage!
This is also the time of year when the Apex Downtown Business Association and our partners do a lot of planning for upcoming festivals and events in Downtown Apex. If you or your organization are interested in sponsoring any of these events, particularly the Apex Music Festival in September, please contact us at email@example.com.

History of Downtown Apex – An Old North Carolina Railroad TownApex, North Carolina is a charming blend of rich history and bright future. Founded in the 1860's, the Town got its name from a location at the highest point on the old Chatham Railroad. Downtown Apex, considered one of the most intact turn-of-the-century railroad towns in the area, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District in 1994, and includes about 60 structures built between 1870 and 1940. The Old Union Depot, built in 1914, is designated as a Wake County Historic Landmark. The Apex Historical Society is located nearby in an old caboose.
Today, Apex is one of the most vibrant, progressive, and fastest-growing communities in the Research Triangle area, and the thriving Downtown Historic District is at the Town's heart. The unique mixture of historic homes, restaurants, and specialty shops gives special meaning to the motto: "Apex, the peak of good living." It's no surprise that Apex and the Triangle area have consistently appeared as a top 10-ranked community in major publications such as Business North Carolina, Money, CNN/Money, and Forbes.
