Things To Do
In Lexington, Downtown is Uptown
Lexington’s downtown is known as Uptown, a place where long-standing shops thrive alongside artist galleries, boutiques and trendy restaurants. Lexington’s Main Street district is anchored by The Square, home to the century-old Conrad & Hinkle Food Market, famous for pimento cheese. Also on The Square are Missions Pottery, Perfect Blend coffee shop and Lexington’s Visitors Center. Be sure to stop in The Candy Factory, a store for those who consider candy an essential food group, or indulge your sweet tooth just down the street at Red Donut Shop. Check out Lexington’s original brick barbecue pits on display in City Hall, take in a show at Edward C. Smith Civic Center or Breeden Insurance Amphitheater, or browse more than 100 aisles at Lanier Hardware.
