The Georges

Location

Lexington is the perfect escape for history lovers, nature lovers, and lovers of small town charm. Approximately 50 miles from Roanoke, 140 miles from Richmond, and 180 miles from Washington, D.C., Lexington is an easy day trip away.

With power lines buried underground and a dozen buildings dating from the 1700s and 1800s, Lexington hasn’t changed much in 150 years. Lexington’s historical attractions start within the walls of The Georges and include a variety of landmarks, museums, and historic battlefields nearby. Civil War Trail sites in Lexington include the visitor center, the Stonewall Jackson House, Lee Chapel, the VMI Museum, Jordan's Point, and Jackson's tomb. Today, Main Street Lexington provides the quintessential shopping and strolling experience, with a number of boutiques, art galleries, breweries, and restaurants nearby.

Sitting amidst 78,000 acres of national and state parkland including the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, Lexington's natural beauty is abundant. The opportunity for outdoor recreational activity such as hiking, biking, kayaking, climbing, fly fishing, white water rafting, tubing, skiing, or even spelunking are limitless.

Lexington is home to Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University. Founded in 1839, VMI is the oldest state-run military college in the nation. Washington and Lee, founded in 1749 is named for two men who played pivotal roles in the University's history: George Washington, whose generous endowment in 1796 helped the fledgling school (then known as Liberty Hall Academy) survive, and Robert E. Lee, who provided innovative educational leadership during his tenure as president of Washington College from 1865 to 1870. The Georges is located in the heart of downtown Lexington. Just a 5 minute walk from Washington and Lee University and 10 minute walk to VMI.

Whether escaping for the day, the weekend, or an extended stay, visitors will love the history, beauty and charm of Lexington, Virginia.
