Lexington is uniquely Southern
– where neighbors gather on front porches, children ride their bikes, and business owners know your name.
This is the place that looks like a city but feels like a town. Located just minutes from the state’s capital city and its largest university, Lexington has all the benefits a cosmopolitan area has to offer. But once you cross the bridge into Lexington County, you can feel the stresses of the day slipping away. We’ve got it all in Lexington but without the hassles that often accompany the big city.
Travel another mile and you’re on Lake Murray
where you can enjoy a boat ride, go swimming or declare your love with a lock left on the dam walkway. Dotted in between you’ll find lovely neighborhoods where children play and flowers bloom. Around another corner you’ll see the farms that made Lexington prosperous. It’s all here. Something unexpected, unpredictable, but yet comforting and reassuring. This is home.
Whether you come to Lexington for a weekend of fishing at Lake Murray, a University of South Carolina Gamecocks football game or a Girlfriends Getaway, we have everything here to make your stay fabulous: first-class hotels and inns, gourmet and casual dining to make your taste buds sing, recreational activities to please everyone in the family, and shopping galore – all within a quick drive to everywhere you want to go.
Visit Lexington and immerse yourself in the legacy of our proud history and delight in the promising future that is here. Visitors are enchanted. Some come back year after year. Some never leave.
Stop by the Greater Lexington Chamber and Visitors Center to get everything you need to eat, stay and play in the place we call home. www.lexingtonsc.org
