All About Lexington

Located 70 miles east of Louisville in central Kentucky, Lexington has long attracted horse lovers. There are more than 450 horse farms here, surrounded by miles of rolling hills and pastures covered in the lush bluegrass. But there’s more than horses on the brain here.

Some of the performance spaces have a long history, such as the Lexington Opera House, which dates back to 1886. Lexington’s universities add to the city’s robust arts calendars at venues like the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre and the Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts.

You’ll find numerous parks to explore around town and an eclectic range of dining and drinking options, including several wineries and bourbon distilleries. Lexington is also part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which highlights notable distilleries around the state.
