Lexington Homes for Sale and Real Estate

Area Description

You’ve probably eaten a McDonald’s hamburger. Those billions of burgers served all taste just like Lexington, “the first resort north” at the base of Michigan’s Thumb.

McDonald’s hamburgers taste so good because they are all dressed with pickles from Gielow Pickles Inc. in Lexington. Gielow has been making pickles since about 1900 and is a big part of the reason that the Thumb and the state of Michigan are the largest cucumber-growing regions in the world.

The Lexington Village Theatre downtown books top musical groups, comedians and other acts from around the country — ranging from the Carpenters to Ted Nugent and Lee Ann Womack to The Glen Miller Orchestra. About an hour and a half from Detroit, the theater’s concerts and events are often sold out. It’s not the only place in town to enjoy live music, though, with other venues — including the award-winning Lexington Brewing Co. and Wine House — featuring local and regional musicians every weekend. Thumbfest, a celebration of acoustic, folk and world music, fills the streets of downtown with thousands every Labor Day weekend. Free summer concerts at the Tierney Park beside Lake Huron always attract a crowd.

The fun, though, lasts year-round in Lexington, from a juried summer art fair that is among the best in the state, to the uniquely Lexington Christmas Horse Parade in December.
