Lewisburg is an amazing historic town with shopping, food and all around good people. Lewisburg has many fun things to offer for families such as Carnage Hall or the bowling alley. Everyone should at least try to visit this small cool town. Another interesting thing about Lewisburg is the haunted properties in the area and the fascinating historic facts that come with them. I feel like the schools are safe and see great improvements each year. Lewisburg offers the most beautiful mountainous views you have ever seen. The Greenbrier River which is located near Lewisburg is also another wonderful attraction for anyone. There are several golf courses in the area and Lewisburg has its very own airport. The college that I attend is located in downtown Lewisburg which makes it very accessible to everything. Lewisburg is also a low crime area which is a nice relief. I must say I don’t have anything negative to say about the town I live in.
