"Lexington – Truly a Perfect City"

I grew a fondness for Lexington many years ago. My mom goes a couple times per year to visit a friend, so the first time I tagged along, I fell in love with the city. So much so, that it is on my list of locations I’m considering for my move this year. You won’t find a friendlier community and more things to do anywhere; it just feels like home.

This small village only has a little over 1,000 residents, but it welcomes a lot of tourists so you do need to be prepared for a little traffic. There are fantastic parks, and it sits right on Lake Huron so the beaches are beautiful. There is a marina where you can rent kayaks, boats and even take sailing lessons.

Lexington is a haven for the antique-lover. The city is full of boutiques, antique and folk art shops and of course, OH’ Fudge Shoppe. There are also a ton of restaurants along Lakeshore Road; the Cadillac House has phenomenal pizza.

If you have a family, Lexington is about the safest place you can choose to live. Seriously, this is the type of place you can leave your door unlocked at home and your purse sitting on the front seat of your car and nothing will happen. The school district is small so students get plenty of attention.

You will find that many residents work in Sandusky or Port Huron, both of which are about 20 miles away, so the commute isn’t bad. However, most people who live here work at local hotels, restaurants or run their own B&B’s for the constant flow of visitors.
  • Friendly community
  • Always something to do
  • Zero crime rate
  • A bit of a drive to a large city
