Experience true quality of life in South Carolina.
Life is just right in South Carolina. You’re surrounded by smiling faces and beautiful places in a community that welcomes families and friends. And, with a unique mix of urban, rural and cosmopolitan districts, there may be no better place than our own Lexington County.
A Thriving Community
Lexington Medical Center is nestled within one of the fastest growing, most affluent counties in South Carolina. Just across the Congaree River from the state’s busy capital, Lexington is happily situated within short distances from Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Hilton Head and the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.
Lexington County’s five public school districts have learning cultures that consistently rank among the state’s best. What’s more, excellent private and charter schools open doors for students of all ages to achieve their full academic potential. From the state’s premier university to the smallest private college, post-secondary schools graduate students who are global thinkers skilled in the latest technologies.
Our temperate climate supports year-round outdoor activities and sporting events. Scenic downtown river views and the 500 acres of shore along beautiful Lake Murray offer serene, yet dynamic settings. With a full slate of local festivals, community farmer’s markets, concerts and special events, it’s easy to see why our community is so closely knit.
Cultural experiences abound throughout Columbia, Lexington and surrounding communities. The lush 170-acre Riverbanks Zoo & Garden is one of the nation’s premier zoos and features stunning natural habitat exhibits as well as the spectacular, lushly cultivated botanical garden. A world class children’s museum, EdVenture, is located next to the state’s most comprehensive museum, the South Carolina State Museum. Both are just blocks from another must-see cultural experience: the Columbia Museum of Art, the state’s largest art museum.
