The population of Apex has grown from 5,000 people in 1990 to more than 56,000 people today. And of course there’s a reason for this increase in population - in fact there are dozens of reasons. A strong regional economy, access to world-class healthcare, top-notch educational opportunities, a charming downtown, wonderful weather, and our welcoming and friendly residents. The list goes on and on.
Located near the center of the Research Triangle Region, Apex is just minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport, three major research universities (North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University) plus several more colleges and universities, and the innovative businesses that comprise the renowned Research Triangle Park.
With our location near the intersection of US Highways 1 and 64, only minutes from Interstate 40 and connected to Interstate 540, Apex offers residents and businesses excellent access to one of the fastest growing regions in the nation. And if you’re looking for a place to get away for an evening or even a couple of days, we’re only an hour from world-class golfing in Pinehurst, NC; and between two and three hours from several North Carolina beaches to the east; and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west.
