A Perfect Season

No, we are not talking about the University of Kentucky's spectacular 31-0 regular season record, or their flawless run for the NCAA Championship! We are referring to Spring in the Bluegrass.

Spring is the perfect season to experience the uncommon Southern charm and beauty of Lexington, Kentucky. Bike our back roads, visit a private horse farm, take a walking tour, see live Thoroughbred racing at Keeneland, enjoy our many parks, visit a Bourbon distillery...

Check out the Idea Guide for inspiration, and start planning your Spring trip!
