Parks & Recreation

A standout among the town's recreational scenes, Apex Community Park features sports fields, wide-open green spaces, and a children's playground. Set against Apex Lake, this namesake park is the perfect place to cast a line or put your canoe in the water. And if you want to bring your furry friend along on your outdoor adventure, then you can visit the dog-friendly Apex Nature Park. 

Take your sports skills to the next level at XL Sports World, the community's elite recreation center. Here, you can take advantage of multiple sports programs, including youth and adult sports leagues, a mini sports academy, and year-round camps. 

Shopping & Dining

Apex's top retail destinations can be found at Beaver Creek Commons and Beaver Creek Crossings. These two shopping centers are where residents go for everything from wardrobe staples to statement pieces. Some of the most popular stores include big names such as SuperTarget, T.J. Maxx, and Dick's Sporting Goods. 

Daniel's Restaurant & Catering is classified as an Apex dining tradition, having served the community since 1996. Here, you can savor hand-stretched pizzas and piled-high pasta dishes. For some more homestyle Italian fare, you can try Anna's Pizzeria in the historic downtown district.  

Arts & Entertainment

You can catch a small-town theater performance, plus plenty of locally-sourced artwork, at the Halle Cultural Arts Center. Featuring three art galleries, two studio classrooms, and a 150-seat theater, this cultural center is the prime spot to get a fresh perspective on Apex's arts scene. 

Want to experience Apex like a true local? As the community's largest annual event, PeakFest celebrates all there is to love about Apex. This free festival features all-day live music, a variety of local art vendors, and enough entertainment to consume the streets of downtown Apex.
