For the equestrian lovers – the Kentucky Horse Park showcases and celebrates the history of horses through a wide range of educational offerings, including museums, galleries, theaters, and working farm exhibits. Admire the rolling hills of the Kentucky bluegrass with a picturesque view of nearly 50 breeds of horses grazing upon its 1,200 acres of lush pastures.

Learn more about their hours and current offerings here.

Did you know you can cycle from downtown Lexington to the Horse Park? It’s true! Grab your bike and hit the Legacy Trail, a 12-mile paved path which passes parks and historic sites along the way.

3. One Word… Bourbon

Now, how about some bourbon? After all, you are in Kentucky. Explore the countryside and visit Buffalo Trace or Wild Turkey for a guided tour. Or stay close and visit James E Pepper Distillery at Distillery District downtown. There are a few local distilleries that are still in the process of reopening their doors to the public – stay up to date on re-openings with this resource from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Can’t find what you are looking for, try a flight from Lockbox’s expansive bourbon library. Afterwards, visit our gift shop and take home a bottle of our exclusive private barrel 21c Selects.
