The weather is heating up, and summer is right around the corner. That means that it is time to start making plans and carefully curating your summer bucket list.  It can often be tough to compile a list of inexpensive activities in the greater Apex area, so we’ve done the hard work for you!

Here are 10 fun and cheap activities to do this summer (or even during a long weekend):

  1. Check out the Living Conservatory at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences: Tuesday – Sunday 10:30 am-12:30 pm and 1:00-3:00 pm starting May 27.
  2. Peruse the Apex Farmer’s Market: every first and third Saturday of the month 9:00 am-12:00 pm at Beaver Creek Crossing.
