More on Lexington

Last month I wrote a couple of entries on Lexington, Virginia. Someone asked what I thought of the town as a place to live. I think Lexington is a lovely town and has a lot to offer. It is a college town, rich in history, situated in a pretty area. Nearby shopping seems adequate. I've known a couple of people who moved there from Northern Virginia because it seems like a nice place to retire.

So far the urban mish-mash of growth that ruins many towns has not overcome it's small-town charm. Lexington is located next to the intersection of I-81 and I-64 and is convenient to Staunton, Roanoke, and Lynchburg.

P.S. The picture above right is a house for sale in Lexington. We looked at the outside. The yardwork could keep you busy for a long, long time.
