Area Information about Lexington

Lexington is a wonderful place to live! This affordable community is full of small-town charm, yet it is easily accessible to nearby metropolitan areas, including High Point (25 minutes), Winston-Salem (30 minutes), Greensboro (35 minutes), Charlotte (1 hour) and Raleigh (less than 2 hours).

Its claim to fame, however, is its down-home cuisine. Lexington is known as the "Barbecue Capital of the World" for its local restaurants and unique style of barbecue — pork shoulders dipped in a sauce made with vinegar and a hint of ketchup. (You can read more about Lexington-style barbecue in Our State Magazine.) Every year, thousands flock to Lexington to enjoy the local cuisine at the Barbecue Festival.



Lexington is famous for its barbecue restaurants, but the town also features a quaint Main Street and several parks.


If you love small-town charm, you'll love living in Lexington. About 19,000 people call Lexington home.


Average summer temperatures are 89 degrees and winter temperatures are 51 degrees in Lexington.
