Visit Lexington

If you were to close your eyes and imagine what the Bluegrass is like, you might experience the following sounds – a bugler’s call to the post at Keeneland’s first race of the day, legs of a Thoroughbred horse churning over the rolling countryside at one many horse farms in the area, the roar of the crowd at a University of Kentucky football or basketball game, the chatter of people enjoying a local Gallery Hop, museum, arts fair or farmers market, the laughter of children taking in a Summer day at one of Lexington’s swimming pools, the excitement of students at one of many area colleges and universities generating ideas.

Once you open your eyes, the Bluegrass is ten times as good as it sounds. From the time you arrive here, your senses will be tested to the fullest extent. You’ll see, hear, taste and smell some of the most wonderful things you’ll ever experience. From the region’s scenic beauty to Fayette County’s gently rolling countryside lined by white, wooden or stone fences, to the bustling of downtown living – there truly is something for everyone. In mere minutes, motorists can drive past horse farms, through downtown and back to rolling countryside.
