Uptown Lexington is a great place to visit when you feel like doing a little walking. Following the designation of the Uptown Lexington Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996, Uptown Lexington, Inc. wrote the Uptown Lexington Heritage Tour guide. Download the walking tour guide to learn more about historic architecture and the heritage of Davidson County's only historic district. The tour takes about an hour to complete.
In 2004, Uptown Lexington, Inc., the Davidson County Health Department and the Healthy Carolinians teamed up to develop the Start with your Heart Walking Trails. Five trails, ranging from .5 mile to a 1.9 mile walk, stroll past historic buildings, uptown's rich collection of shops and restaurants, service and professional offices, historic homes and the Lexington cemetery, and even Lexington's Treasured trees.
Download each of the trails and start walking!
