Lexington County has some of the best! Schools your child can attend. As well as many job opportunities and openings all around the Lexington area. There is also May after school day-cares for parents that work late. I can pretty much walk anywhere in Lexington and not have a fear in the world because of top notch police officials, and patrols. Very safe and would recommend living here to anyone I can across that isn’t already!

I've been living in Lexington for 2 years now. I love the community I live in. It's very clean and up to date. The area is growing and becoming a little congested but it's nice to not be too far from things.
The schools in the district are great, from what I know of them.
In Lexington I'm near the major highways so traveling throughout the state is easy. I couldn't be happier living in Lexington!
Lexington, South Carolina is a town that has a lot of opportunities. There are so many jobs and diverse career choices that allows people a wide range of options. There are also good people here who will help a person in need whenever they can. The town is home and the community sticks together through it all.
