MetroLex Makes Coolest Small Towns List

The October issue of Budget Travel magazine has a feature on America’s 10 Coolest Small Towns. Lexington is right there between Cayucos, Calif., and Beaux Bridge, La. What constitutes cool in the magazine’s view: “Every now and then, you stumble upon a town that’s gotten everything right—great coffee, food with character, shop owners with purpose. These 10 spots have it all, in perfectly small doses.” The Lexington blurb, subtitled, “right out of Norman Rockwell,” cites five of the town’s businesses: Hull’s Drive In, 1868 Magnolia House Inn, P.S. Pumpkinseeds, George and Bob, and the Red Hen. Surprisingly, there is no mention of either Washington and Lee or VMI.
