Lexington South Carolina

I love my Little Lexington South Carolina even though its not so little anymore. I hope these links will help give you the insight as why I call Lexington home! 
Lexington County South Carolina is thriving because of its diverse population, varied economy, excellent schools, assorted transportation opportunities, and excellent recreational opportunities. Population growth is consistent, dynamic and dispersed throughout the county’s 750 square miles. The economy is balanced between high-tech industries, agriculture, significant regional retail centers, and a growing retirement destination.
The schools are perennially at or near the top of every ranking of school excellence – academic, athletic, music and other activities. Three different Interstate highways, two public airports, several private airports, and 4 rail lines link Lexington County and the world. Lake Murray is the largest single recreational attraction in the county yet is only one of many centers for recreation. In addition to the consistent population growth Lexington County is experiencing commercial, retail and industrial growth.

Lake Murray South Carolina, Lake Murray is a 50,000 acre lake created by the nation’s largest earthen dam, boasts of over 700 miles of shoreline – that’s more shoreline, by the way, than the entire seacoast of South Carolina!  With lake front home sites, great parks and recreation facilities, and special events like the Bassmaster BP Top Ten 100 Pro-Am Tournament, it’s no wonder Lexington is growing so fast!  The area also offers access to some of the finest golf courses, tennis courts and other recreational facilities for you, your family, your employees and business associates.
