Destination guide

Apex is a modern town with bags of old-world charm

Located just a 20-minute drive from vibrant state capital Raleigh, Apex is among North Carolina's most beguiling small towns. Take a leisurely stroll through its historic downtown district and you'll feel like you've stepped back in time, with an array of beautiful early 20th-century buildings housing treasure-filled antique and gift stores, and family-run eateries where you're guaranteed the friendliest of welcomes. A thriving arts scene, fabulous year-round festivals, and acres of lush parkland further cement the town's status as a must-visit destination. And with an array of Apex vacation rentals to choose from, you're sure to find your ideal home-away-from-home.

Things to do

Verdant vineyards and awesome art in Apex

You'll find a diverse array of enthralling attractions within easy reach of your Apex vacation rental. The Halle Cultural Arts Center is a cherished local institution. Its 3 galleries play host to an ever-rotating program of expertly-curated exhibits, while its intimate theater is where you can enjoy everything from classical and jazz concerts to fun-packed family musicals. For a decadent day of self-indulgence, be sure to swing by the Cloer Family Vineyards. At this charming boutique winery you can learn about every stage of the wine-making process, before sampling award-winning, fruity whites and full-bodied reds to your heart's content.


The festivities never end in Apex

A major highlight of the town's jam-packed program of annual festivals and events is PeakFest, a colorful arts and crafts festival that takes place each May. With mouth-watering street food, live music and entertainment, and all manner of hand-crafted goods to peruse, family fun is guaranteed. In September, the Apex Music Festival takes over downtown, with an eclectic line-up of bands performing in the glorious late summer sunshine. And every Saturday from mid-April until mid-October, the Apex Farmers Market is where you can pick up fresh produce, irresistible baked goods, and gorgeous gifts like natural soaps and handcrafted knitwear.


All-season thrills in Apex

Apex enjoys a subtropical climate, ensuring long, hot summers with plenty of sunshine. Apex vacation rentals are in higher demand during the peak holiday season of June to August, so early booking is a good idea. Humidity is lower in spring and fall, so temperatures are generally pleasantly warm rather than uncomfortably hot, and fewer out-of-town visitors means that you may secure a great deal on accommodation. Wrap up warm if you're visiting in winter, when sub-zero temperatures and snowfall are a common occurrence. Rainfall is fairly consistent throughout the year, so be sure to pack waterproofs or an umbrella.

Natural features

Lush lakesides and hiking hotspots

Apex is blessed with acres of blissfully unspoilt, lush parkland. A 15-minute drive from downtown leads to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, where you'll find sandy beaches, tranquil camp sites, and easy-to-follow hiking trails, grouped around an expansive, shimmering lake. In the warmer months, the crystal-clear waters are ideal for swimming, kayaking, and fishing, while birdwatchers should keep an eye out for magnificent bald eagles and osprey circling overhead. Meanwhile, the nearby American Tobacco Trail, a 23-mile-long rail trail that passes through dense, fragrant woodlands, is the perfect place for a bracing walk or bike ride.
