Hello. Am looking for information about retiring to Lexington Tn. I have heard about retirement ghettos and would like to know if Lexington is considered one of those. Is it mainly hilly, flat or what? Is there a campsite near it that a person could camp at to look at the city?
Thanks in advance.

Never have I heard of Lexington referred to as a retirement ghetto. It's a small town. Not many people would choose Lexington to retire to. Unless you're John McAfee, the internet security guy, who just recently decided to permanently call Lexington home. I hear he's a little crazy, but I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting him. As for the hills or flat, it's got both. It's got hills, flats, curves, and straight spots. There's camping at Natchez Trace state park or Beach Lake camp grounds. There's about 7 different lakes in the area if you're into fishing, boating, or water sports. And if you're looking for something bigger the TN river and Buffalo river are about 20 minutes away in Parsons. Other than that though there's not really a lot to do in Lexington. But you've got Jackson about 30 minutes west and you're roughly half-way to either Memphis or Nashville. And only about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from either Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, or Kentucky.

Anyway. Come on down and check us out. And if you do decide to move here I'm sure I will see ya. I work at the Dollar Tree, I get to see everyone.

lol Dollar Tree sure is a place I'd go. :-) Thank you for that. Yes, that's what we're looking for is a small place, which means very economical, right? Low crime, low taxes and friendly. Fits my bill! :-)
