LEXINGTON LOVES PLANTS

& PLANTS LOVE LEXINGTON


Everybody knows Lexington as the Horse Capital of the World. But before they ever set eyes on a Thoroughbred, the first thing every new visitor notices is just how unbelievably green our city is. Lexington is surrounded by more than 30,000 acres of pristine, protected bluegrass and over 450 meticulously landscaped horse farms. All of it accessible with a short drive in any direction from our vibrant downtown. Couple that with about 100 parks and 53,000 street trees and you’ve got a plant lover’s paradise that’s perfect for your next adventure.

THE WORLD’S FIRST

PLANT-FRIENDLY HOTEL


It’s official. Pets are the new babies, and plants are the new pets. People everywhere now consider their leafy buddies to be part of the family just like a beloved dog or cat. So VisitLEX partnered with Elwood Hotel & Suites to offer eco-minded visitors the World’s First Plant-Friendly Hotel experience, a collection of special rooms and amenities for plant moms and dads who can’t bear to leave their potted pals at home.
