Destination guide

Discover a town almost as old as the country itself

History abounds in the picturesque city of Lexington. Established in 1778, plenty of historic buildings remain today in the heart of Downtown. While it may date from Revolutionary days, Lexington's ties to the Civil War are possibly even stronger, offering plenty of treats for the history buffs in your group. There'll be no shortage of picture-perfect scenery surrounding your Lexington vacation rental, with several national forests and parks nearby, all of which you can reach by taking a drive down the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, just outside town.

Things to do

Walk in the footsteps of Confederate generals

Some of the biggest figures in Civil War history found their final resting places in Lexington. The Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery boasts the grave of its namesake general, among others. Robert E. Lee is buried outside the city's Lee Chapel, which dates from 1867. You can also find the historic Cyrus McCormick Farm, once owned by the inventor of the mechanical reaper. Marvel at the landmark Natural Bridge rock formation, or venture further afield to explore the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. If you love zoos, you'll want to check out Virginia Safari Park.

Activities

The great outdoors by day, great movies by night

There are endless ways to get your fresh air fix at a Lexington vacation rental. Pack a picnic and head to a local swimming hole like Panther Falls, or enjoy some family-friendly nature encounters at Boxerwood Nature Center & Woodland Garden. Maury River is the place to go for all sorts of watersports, including fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Horse lovers can take riding lessons at the Virginia Horse Center. If you still have energy, there's always hiking and golf. Cap off your day with a movie at the Hull's Drive-In, dating from 1950.

Weather

Bring the sunscreen for those hot Virginia rays

Lexington is known for its hot, humid summers and cool winters. Pack light if you're heading to your Lexington vacation rental during the warmest months of June to August, when the highs soar into the 80s and 90s (and possibly even triple digits). Low temps can dip below freezing as early as November and stay there until March, when you might see the occasional snow. Expect scattered rain throughout the year. The fall foliage displays are stunning, especially in late October and early November when they hit their peak.

Natural features

The greenest of trees on the bluest of highways

Flanked by the verdant forests that spread out from both sides of the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Lexington sits in a nature lover's paradise. From rolling green hills, to mountains, to rivers, you'll find it all here. The Arboretum at the Boxerwood Nature Center & Woodland Garden is home to thousands of varieties of trees and shrubs, from dogwoods to Japanese maples. Herons and hawks are just two of the birds you'll see in the skies. Love waterfalls? Panther Falls and Balcony Falls aren't to be missed.
