Lexington County is THE community. The area not only thrived economically, but socially as well. Starting students, kids are involved with sports, politics, have jobs early on, participate in events regarding health or social issues, and so much more. Adults are always supporting the younger generations as well as being a big part of nightlife and restaurants in the downtown areas. The poeople work together to create this environment that is comfortable for all types of people and relishes a community made for these people to all enjoy.

The community is pet friendly, most of the neighbors in this area have pets. Some of them don't keep their animals inside which means they tend to escape quite a bit. When I was very little the community had a more welcoming sense to it and held more event, like 4th of July was a community wide event now it is down to a family or so. Some people tend to stay here quite a long time while others tend to come and go.
The area is a nice place to live, the amount of local businesses and restaurants is quite reassuring. This area compared to other locations in the country seem a medium sized town with a mixture of income households. This area is really a melting pot, which adds to the diversity of the inhabitants.
