  • Historic homes abound! Finding a historic home for rent in Lexington is easier than in other areas of the country. The median home age is 48, 11 years older than the national average. Homes also tend to be less expensive. The median home price is just $82,000, compared to the national average of $170,100. The Park Place historic district in downtown Lexington is a good place to start a home search, as are the Uptown and Erlanger Mill Village historic districts.
  • Robust rental market! More homes are rented rather than owned in Lexington, with more than 48 percent of homes rented, compared to the national average of just over 30 percent. Some communities have a large number of rent to own houses, such as the downtown area and the Meadowview and Erlanger communities.
  • World-famous barbecue! Not many places have a food named after them, especially not a place as small as Lexington. The town is known for a particular type of barbecue, which is a subset of North Carolina barbecue. Barbecue joints are found throughout the town and include The Barbecue Center, which opened in 1955, and Lexington Barbecue, known locally as The Honey Monk or Lexington #1.
  • Pigs take over the city! Every year the city is overrun by pigs when artistic pig sculptures are placed in public places throughout the downtown business area. Known as Pigs in the City, the city-sponsored initiative features new pigs by local artists each year. The pigs are sometimes still on display for the one-day Lexington Barbecue Festival each fall.
  • Recreation on the lake! High Rock Lake is a popular spot for many residents, whether they want to fish for crappie, sunfish or catfish. The lake has hosted the Bassmaster Classic several times and is a favorite spot for catching large mouth bass due to its shallow depth. The lake is also ideal for boating, and several campgrounds line its shores.
