Our community ranks high in quality of life factors, such as health care, public safety, educational attainment, and quality family living.  The area also measures high among the best places for business location, creativity, entrepreneurial growth, and career relocation.  Residents of competing cities view Lexington as a beautiful place, with great schools, an innovative health care system, a strong economy, and mountains of potential.

The housing choices for a resident of Fayette County are as diverse as the people and the economy.  From newer suburban neighborhoods like Andover or Masterson Station to older, historical areas such as Henry Clay and Chevy Chase, Lexington truly offers something for everyone.  Residents can choose from downtown living, farms, homes and suburbia, as well as the small-town atmosphere of communities like Midway, Paris, Versailles or Winchester.
