Past, Present, and Future
According to Lexington’s official website, there’s a Civil War era cannonball still “lodged high in a pillar at the Lafayette County Courthouse.” Rent one of Lexington’s fine apartments and you’ll be living in a city that recognizes its historic significance. The city’s motto is: “Preserving our History. Positioning for the Future.” Not only does Lexington leave historic cannonballs where they lay, it also does everything it can to ensure the best possible future for its residents by providing exceptional schools and fun community events. With a population of only around 4,500, Lexington is a small city with big goals. It provides the excellent medical care to its residents and offers “a burgeoning business community that steadily positions to be a player in this new economy.” Should you ever need a taste of the big city, Kansas City is only 40 miles away. Once you get your fill of big city entertainment and shopping, however, you’ll be happy to return home to a quiet, peaceful community.
Pools, Parks, and Play
While it’s not recommended that you play with cannonballs when you rent one of Lexington’s lovely apartments, you can get out and play a safe ballgame whenever you’d like. There are plenty of parks and recreational opportunities available in Lexington. Got a Louisville Slugger and a few new friends? Head over to the Lion's Club Community Park and play a game of baseball on one of five fields. Want to set up your new buddy for a super spike? Play a game of volleyball on one of the park’s two courts. Should you need a break from the action, you can eat lunch at one of four shelters or take a casual walk on the 0.6 mile trail. If you need a cool dip in the pool after all that action, head over to Municipal Water Park for a splashing good time. Ready for another game? Why not up the intensity level and join one of the city’s volleyball or softball leagues? No matter what your recreational interest or skill level, you’ll find something to enjoy in Lexington. If you still want to play with cannonballs, visit Municipal Water Park and make a splash!
History and Antiques
You can’t live in a city like Lexington without getting accustomed with its unique past and there’s no better way to do so than to explore its historic districts and buildings. Want to learn about the steamboat era or see some Civil War artifacts? Be sure to visit the Lexington Historical Museum. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lexington Historical Museum is a great place to get oriented when you first move into town. If you want a taste of Lexington’s history, why not visit one of its many antique shops, like Lexington Antique Company or The Curiosity Shop? Get your fill of history (and killer apartment sprucing antiques) in Lexington.

Are there big sporting events that people in Lexington enjoy attending?
Lexington isn't home to any professional sports teams. Located between Greensboro and Charlotte, however, Lexington residents have plenty of opportunities to watch major sporting events in other cities. Thirty-three miles northeast of Lexington, Greensboro is home to professional baseball and soccer teams: the Greensboro Grasshoppers of the South Atlantic League - Northern Division and the Carolina Dynamo of the USL Premier Development League (PDL). About 60 miles south, Charlotte is home to numerous pro sports teams, most notably the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League and the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association.
Is Lexington pet friendly?
Although Lexington isn't home to any off-leash dog parks, it is still a fairly pet-friendly town. As long as they are kept on leash, Lexington residents can bring their dogs to the grounds of the Battle of Lexington State Historical Site. Across the river to the north is the Hardin Conservation Area, which has hiking and camping opportunities. Other nearby areas conducive to spending time outdoors with pets include the Grand Pass Conservation Area in Grand Pass Township and Blind Pony Lake Conservation Area in Elmwood Township.
What do people in Lexington do as far as outdoor recreation?
Lexington isn't the best place for outdoor recreation. The Missouri River, or the "Mighty Mo," on which it is located does provide some opportunities, however, for canoeing, kayaking, and rafting. The Hardin Conservation Area is located 15 minutes north of Lexington in Crooked River Township, and the Baltimore Bend Conservation Area is located about 20 minutes east of Lexington in Middleton Township, Missouri. Both areas offer bird watching, camping, fishing, hunting, and trapping.
