Walking down Salem Street in Apex is like traveling back in time. Many of the residents here tell us they choose their new home in Apex because it’s so convenient and pleasant to walk downtown!  It’s wonderful to have sidewalks on both sides of the street, in addition to the many benches and cafe seating.
