No. 14 Lexington, VA

15 of 22

Lexington is the kind of place you visit and find yourself picturing your life there. It’s not so much the “wow” factor as it is the “ahh” factor. With tree-lined streets, quaint downtown, old-school haunts like Hull’s Drive-In Movie Theater, and small-town parades down Main Street, this place just feels so livable. It’s also big on culture, thanks to Washington and Lee University. Catch a bluegrass show at Clark’s Ole Time Music Center or browse downtown’s art galleries.
