Driving Tours in the Horse Capital of the World
There is no better way to discover the legendary landscape of the Bluegrass Region than driving the country roads around the Horse Capital of the World. Lush pastures, mile after mile of plank and stone fencing, horses grazing, magnificent homes and barns: all this and more is there for your viewing pleasure!
Here is a great suggestion for enjoying the area by car:
The Bluegrass Country Driving Tour. Call (800) 845-3959 or order online. This large format annotated paper map is one of our most frequently requested publications, second only to our colorful Visitor Planning Guide, and it's free. We will mail one to you, usually on the same day you make your request! It is divided into three parts. Take a morning or an afternoon and do the whole thing, or just pick the circuit that interests you the most. You'll learn about the history and geography of the area, and -of course- you'll also learn about our world-renowned horse industry. If you are already in Lexington, stop by the Visitors Center and pick one up. (Bonus! On the reverse side is a walking tour of historic downtown Lexington.)
