Lexington, NE is a nice place to live. That town offers a huge diversity of people. White, Black African, Hispanics, Asians and Caribbean are the mixture of cultures that its people can enjoy. Also, the safety is great, you can hear the cop’s siren once a month the most. I used to leave my cars unlocked and even my house and there were no intruders. The schools system from what I heard is great too.
Lexington is full of nice and hardworking people. Nice doctors, great teachers and cozy small churches. After I’m retired I would love to go back and live there. Even after finishing my degree I would love to live there. There is one, only one, thing that I don’t like about Lexington is that sometimes smells bad (an awful odor in the air). However, I have so many good memories about that little town.

Lexington is a very multicultural community with a lot of growth. Great place to raise a family and close to other larger cities. They offer a new YMCA, a wonderful aqua park, a field house, and awesome soccer and baseball fields. The hospital is top notch for healthcare and the schools do a great job supporting all the different cultures.
A quiet small town but with many job opportunities and good people, its development is high quality livestock and agriculture
