Things To Do
Apex offers an abundance of activities for all ages. You can stroll along and shop in our historic downtown – or drive a short distance to several major shopping centers offering some of the finest shopping in the Southeastern United States. Have a family picnic in one of the local parks—or go camping, fishing or boating at area lakes. If you’re a fan of sports, you can attend any number of amateur and professional sporting events ranging from high school programs to top-notch ACC athletics, and all the way up to major league NHL hockey.
