We are close to the ocean and mountains. The weather is great and people are nice. Lexington is growing!

Police response time in the county is slow. EMS workers are great but service is sketchy if too many ambulances are out on calls, you may have to wait 20 minutes for one to arrive from opposite end of county....lack of funds
while it is okay now, we are a rapidly growing city with many new opportunities becoming available to people which means that there is only room for growth!
