Favorite thing: Lexington is only minutes from South Carolina's capital city, Columbia and has been around since the early 1800s. It was briefly occupied in 1865 by General Sherman's troops and many of its buildings were burned to the ground. The town quickly rebuilt and today boasts one of the best school districts in South Carolina (not that that is very impressive) and a fairly wealthy population base.
Lexington is probably best known for the sprawling Lake Murray, a long lake full of recreational possiblities including boating and excellent fishing. You'll also find some beautiful and valuable homes surrounding the lake.
