Members-Only Dog Park

While the Hunter Street Dog Park is a public park, it is not just your run-of-the-mill public dog park that lets in just any riff-raff. This dog park is something of an exclusive club for Apex's canine elites. Of course, this is a bit of an exaggeration. There are no bouncers or velvet ropes outside of the Hunter Street Dog Park, but the area is fenced in and requires a membership fee for entry. With two full acres of fenced space and amenities like gazebos and benches, many pet owners find the modest annual fee well worth it.

Anna's Pizzeria

Major chain pizzerias can be found pretty much anywhere in the U.S., so it is something special when a town has its very own local pizza maker that easily outdoes the corporate competition. Apex is one such lucky town thanks to the presence of Anna's Pizzeria, an award-winning and super-popular local pizza restaurant. Anna's Pizzeria was founded in Apex in 1986, and it has been such a local favorite that the company opened a second location in the neighboring town of Fuquay-Varina, giving area residents yet another opportunity to get their Anna's fix.
