Lexington is an independent city located within Rockbridge County in west-central Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the population was 6,867. It is approximately 55 minutes west of the West Virginia border. Settled in 1777, historic Lexington is home to the Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute. Both Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are buried here, and Jackson's home is now open to the public as a museum. Lexington's economy relies primarily on tourism and higher education. It has a convenient location at the intersection of U.S. Route 11 and U.S. Route 60, making it easily accessible for tourists. Places of interest include the George C. Marshall Museum, Museum of Military Memorabilia, the Theater at Lime Kiln and Hull's Drive-In and the downtown historic district. Lexington even offers candlelit walks with ghost tales through the downtown and cemetery, following the footsteps of Generals Lee and Jackson - a fun event for the whole family! Other attractions just a short drive from Lexington include Natural Bridge of Virginia and Natural Bridge Caverns, Virginia Safari Park and Glen Maury Park. Lexington is also home to a farmer's market and several special events throughout the year.

Lexington Weather & Climate

Northeast Virginia's climate is classified as mild, mid-latitude, with a subcategory of humid subtropical. Northeast Virginia generally has mild winters with no dry season and hot summers. Hurricanes make the coastal areas of Virginia vulnerable, but it's rare for a major hurricane to threaten the Virginia coast as hurricanes that far north tend to weaken due to cooler coast waters and increasingly westerly winds. Heavy rain from tropical cyclones are possible, however. Thunderstorms are an occasional concern with the state averaging anywhere from 30-50 days of thunderstorm activity annually, but the highest area of occurrence is towards the west.
