What is there to do here?

Our friendly Visitor Information Specialists are standing by at our Visitors Center with advice and tips on things to do and see in Lexington and throughout the Bluegrass Region. You can pick up useful brochures and maps, learn fun facts about the Bluegrass Region on our interactive screens, and get your picture taken with a life-sized blue horse.

You can park on Upper Street beside the courthouse where you’ll find two 30-minute metered spots marked for visitors. There is other street parking and pay lots nearby. The Victorian Square parking garage (enter from Short Street) is another good option for parking, and we provide a 3-hour validation ticket for this garage; just ask a Visitor Information Specialist when you come to the Visitors Center.

In addition to visitor brochures and materials, we also offer a selection of Lexington-themed items that are a perfect gift for you, your family, and your friends. Coffee mugs, magnets, t-shirts, hats and even stuffed blue horses - if you're looking for something that says "Lexington" then you'll want to stop by.
