Overview

Every visitor to Kentucky should spend a few days in the Lexington area. It's in the heart of Bluegrass Country, the region where horse farms predominate, named in honor of the nutritious groundcover that's the staple of the Thoroughbreds. In addition to the farms, horses and scenery, Lexington offers the variety and comfort of a large city.

Sightseeing

When you're downtown, be sure to visit Victorian Square, a well-executed renovation of a city block with excellent shopping and dining. Also downtown are Triangle Park—a relaxing park that's great for a stroll, lunch alfresco or an evening promenade—and Thoroughbred Park, which has life-size horse statues.

Cultural exhibits can be found at Artsplace, a multiuse arts center. Sports fans will enjoy the University of Kentucky Basketball Museum, dedicated to the highly successful college team.
