The city of Lexington is an incubator for vibrant arts, music and culinary communities with small-town southern charm, big-city amenities and a rich heritage. It’s home to The Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Keeneland Race Course, Kentucky Horse Park, a world class performing arts center (Lexington Opera House) and countless historic sites. Come experience why the Bluegrass Region was named in National Geographic Traveler’s “50 Best Places of a Lifetime.”
Lexington is the horse capital of the world, so there is no shortage of rolling hills and scenic beauty. A trip exploring Lexington should start at the area’s legendary horse farms, or watching a race at Keeneland, one of the most beautiful racetracks in the world. Tour a working distillery on The Kentucky Bourbon Trail, or stay closer to home to experience Lexington’s thriving craft beer community like Country Boy Brewing, West Sixth Brewing or Blue Stallion Brewing Co. Venture just outside the doors of 21c to experience the city’s Southern hospitality and unique flavor at dozens of distinctive local restaurants from Goodfellas Pizza to Table Three Ten to Bourbon n’ Toulouse. Stop by the Farmer’s Market at the Pavilion to take in the unique culinary identity of the region or listen to live music every Thursday, or embark on an evening gallery hop with LexArts Hop to celebrate the arts community. It’s clear that Lexington is a vibrant community. We love to love this place we call home.
