Located in the renovated historic building The Proenade, Common Grounds Coffee is a wonderful spot in Downtown Apex to get your morning dose of caffeine. You can also grab some ice cream, tea or a sandwich while you are there! Local coffee shops are wonderful hangouts to read the morning paper or catch up on local news. Friday and Saturday nights also feature music from artists in the area, a great way to spend the weekend supporting the local scene.

The Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex holds so many events, that I think for this post I will only be able to scratch the surface of them all! They have a goal to promote cultural arts, artistic awareness and appreciation through concerts, community involvement, and special visual presentations. Inside this beautiful building you will find three galleries, a studio classroom, a theater that seats 150, Full Dressing rooms and a catering kitchen.
It opened its doors in 1912 when Apex only had about 700 people. The first floor actually used to be a Farmers Market and in the back was a jail containing two cells AND the firehouse! Isn’t that insane? All that could be found in this one building. Upstairs held the Mayor’s Office and theater in an Opera Style Seating. This building has a lot of history and if you are ever in the Downtown Apex area, I highly recommend checking out this extraordinary piece of history.
