For years exhibitors have been flocking to Lexington, Virginia’s Horse Center for some of the best competition in the country but little do they know just how much this town has to offer.
Lexington is located in the center of Rockbridge County in the Shenandoah Valley region of Virginia. It is home to Virginia Military Institute (VMI) and Washington and Lee University, which contribute a high level of cultural activity in the community.
The Rockbridge Historical Society and the Rockbridge chapter of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts also provide cultural activities. The summer months bring the popular Lime Kiln Theatre productions.
Other recreational activities can be enjoyed off the Blue Ridge Parkway and at nearby George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. Be sure to check out the geocaching trail on your next trip to Lexington.
Boutique shopping and farm-to-table dining are readily at-hand for those strolling the downtown area. You never know what you might find!
Finally the Virginia Horse Center itself offers a variety of activities including riding trails and a cross country course. For more information about the facility visit http://www.horsecenter.org.
