Sweetwater is located in Apex, NC, a town known as “The Peak of Good Living” and recognized as one of the most desirable places to live in the nation.

The name “Apex” derives from the town’s location at the highest point on a stretch of the Chatham Railroad running between Raleigh and the Deep River. Historic downtown Apex grew up around the focal point of the Apex Union Depot, whose site now serves as the Apex Chamber of Commerce.

Characterized by charm and community spirit, Apex is also known for its designation as the #1 place to live in the U.S. by Money Magazine in 2015. It doesn’t get any better than that!
