"Historic Lexington, Virginia" Lexington by 807Wheaton
Lexington Travel Guide: 75 reviews and 156 photos
Lexington's rich heritage means you can visit a city where George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson and George C.Marshall have been a part of local history.
When walking through the town, it's very similar to Leesburg and Winchester in that it is like walking back through time. In this very neat and clean 19th Century college town the streets are hilly and full of well-preserved buildings.
To me this would be a perfect place to come for a weekend getaway.
There are several very nice inns and the Hampton Inn looks really great if you enjoy the amenities of the Hilton family. There are quaint, cozy restaurants all up and down the streets. It's easy to amble along through the town, stopping in here and there at the different places on the walking tour. Much of the history of Lexington begins in the late 1700's with significant architectual development in the early 1800's.
This has got to be a stop on any history buff's tour of the Southern Campaign. There is plenty here in the beautiful Shennandoah Valley to do for several days. Lexington would also be the ideal place to use as home base for day trips - one of my favorite things to do!
- Pros:A neat little town tucked in the Shennandoah Valley
- Cons:None that I noticed as a tourist
- In a nutshell:Lexington would be perfect for a home base for day trips in the Shennandoah Valley
