Apex North Carolina: Growth and Charm Still Coexist

For me, living in Apex, North Carolina and working as a research assistant is a quite compatible combination. Many find Apex neighborhoods to each be best areas in the city. I have a small house near downtown. As the median housing values for homes is estimated at $278,000.00, I was able to secure a modest dwelling for about two-thirds that cost. One must provide their own means of transportation if resident or visitor. Apex is considered part of the metro area along with Raleigh and Durham. Museums, a lake, recreation area, and restaurants are nearby. Colleges and universities are within twenty miles of Apex. Incidentally, Wake Technical Community College and Meredith College are two higher learning institutions nearby. Most working adults hold Bachelor degrees or higher, and our poverty rate is among the lowest in the nation. Our city is growing, but maintaining a sense of who we have been is uppermost in the minds of city administration.

Proximity to RTP I may be transferred to RTP, so I was researching places close-by. My sister, who lives in Garner, suggested Apex. I've seen the youtube.com video and it looks like a great little city. Can someone who lives there give me an idea of what the town is like and how long of a commute it might be to RTP?
