Kentucky's Showplace

Located in the heart of the Bluegrass Region, Lexington is known around the globe as the “Horse Capital of the World”.  The city is surrounded by green rolling hills and the perfectly manicured pastures of more than 450 horse farms.  This is the region that gave birth to Bourbon, the United States' only native spirit, and many charming distilleries are only a short drive away.  We invite you to discover our sophisticated culinary scene, historic attractions, quaint neighborhoods and abundant shopping opportunities.
