I started a new series Travel Tuesday. The goal is to share a post on Tuesday about Travel. It may be local travel, far away travel or dream travel. I thought I would start with some local travel. We are headed to Apex, NC. Truthfully I will be taking several day trips to explore the because it is a short drive to this lovely town.
I have lived in North Carolina for over 30 years. 30 years! How can that even be possible? Well, it is.
The first time I visited Apex, I fell in love with this small town. I was and probably still am a member of the Methodist Church in Apex, and I used to sing on their praise team. I should probably go back and visit since I no longer am involved in a local church.
For my Apex posts, I want to focus on a few things to share with you just in case you want to stop by. I want to visit a few shops, restaurants, wine-related venues, a park, and anything else I may discover on my journey. I thought I would start with a stroll downtown to get my bearings. I will share some photos and a few facts about Apex that I find online.
I came across 3 sculptures on my casual walk around Apex.
They are hosting a
Sculputure Walkuntil March of 2023, I may need to do that.
I began my walk at the
Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber is in The Train Depot on the right-hand side of the building.
Apex is in Wake County, NC.
The town was incorporated in 1873.
The train depot was built in 1867
Apex downtown was designated a historic district in 1994
In 1900 the town had a population of 349 people, and in 2019, there were 59,300 people.
I can’t wait to start exploring Apex. You will see upcoming posts in my Tuesday Travel Series.
I took this stroll on a Monday. Please be aware that if you decide to visit make sure you check the open hours of the shops and restaurants. I quickly became aware that many places are closed on Monday and many restaurants don’t open until the evening. All of this depends on the day. I also was told a lot changed after Covid because the businesses especially the restaurants are short-staffed.
Happy Travels Everyone!
