A lot depends on what part of town you work in. I live and work downtown and I almost never get stuck in traffic.

Lexington is a nice town. The schools are very good and there is lots of shopping. The main road through town gets very crowded during rush hour but other than that it is a nice place to live. You won't get the fabulous Maine lobster though. Most newer homes are in subdivisions. Be prepared though because it is very hot in the summer. The winter weather is the best.
good luck in your search

I wouldn't call the winter weather the best, the best weather is about to occur over the next 2 months (March & April) when it's 70s and occasionally 80s every day and 50s at night - same goes for October & November in the fall. While the winter is mild and I definitely enjoy it a lot better than the north, it's still a little cool to be considered the best weather for the midlands.

I have to say, we are very happy with our choice of Lexington. The schools are excellent and people are very friendly. I do however agree with the traffic complaints. My drive seems silly after living in New York but there aren't any alterante roads. A couple of more roads for the growing population would be nice!

Lexington and West Columbia are very nice and growing. Both are only 40 mins to Augusta which is another plus. Augusta has several stores/restaurants like Sephora, Aldo, Chop House, Apple, PF Changs, & Aerie that Columbia doesn't have yet.
