It is a very family friendly community where education, commerce, and recreation are all important. I enjoy the fact that I know my neighbors’ names and they know mine — we do life together. We are in a sweet spot with easy access to Lake Murray, Columbia, and the interstates, but our people are what makes the community a great place to live.
There has been a great deal of commercial development throughout the Lexington area. I don’t have to leave the area for anything I need which is nice, but it also means there have been many new neighborhoods and more traffic. There have also been numerous new schools built. My children have or will be attending elementary, middle, and high schools that did not exist when we moved here.
