I have had a lot of fun in Apex, NC. I live very close to Apex, so I can visit often.
If I were traveling to Apex and had kids, what are a few things we could do?
I have two sets of grandkids. Jane and Riley are two and one, and Caleb and Maggie are 6 and 11. I was thinking, if I were on vacation and I had a day to spend with the kids in Apex, what would I do?
A Day With Jane And Riley in Apex NC
Let’s start with the two little ones. The highlights for the girls are food and fun, so with that in mind, this would be my plan.
We would start the day with a nice breakfast at First Watch in Apex. This is the perfect place for a breakfast menu for kids and adults. This restaurant is not far from downtown Apex. It is a chain, and I have been several times, and I really like the food.
Next, we would hit one of the area parks and playgrounds. Kelly Road Park is the one that looked the most interesting to me.
After we had expended all the kid’s energy at the park, we would head back to Salem Street for ice cream. There is an ice cream shop downtown calledFresh Local Ice Cream. I have not had ice cream here, but I have been to Fresh Local Ice Cream in Raleigh, and it is delicious.
A Day With Caleb and Maggie In Apex NC
If I were spending a day in Apex with Caleb and Maggie, we would also start off with a nice breakfast at First Watch. They both love pancakes, so this would be the perfect breakfast spot.
Next, we would head over toDefy Gravity which is very close to the breakfast spot. We have been there a couple of times, and the kids love it. It is a great place to get an amazing workout. Here you will find obstacle courses, a climbing wall, and tons of other fun activities. Defy Gravity is located in Beaver Creek Commons and is a great place for family fun.
After defying gravity, we would head out to lunch at Red Robin. This has become a tradition for us if a tradition is possible after doing it twice. Here we enjoy burgers and lemonade. As an added plus, there are video games they can play on a device on the table. All this keeps the kiddos very happy.
Next, we would head back to downtown Apex. They have, for a limited time, a Sculpture Walk. We would download the sculpture map and find all the sculptures on the list. I think that would be fun.
I hope this gives you some good ideas if you find yourself in Apex with kids.
