Apex/Holly Springs

More boutique in feel than other surrounding areas with commercial development, locals call the area of Apex and Holly Springs the "peak of good living." A fast-growing community, expanding in step with RTP, much of the new development has been in Holly Springs. In 2015, Money Magazine named Apex the "Best Place to Live in America."
