Lexington is a historic city noted for its horse farms. It is located in a region of low, rolling hills known as the Bluegrass.
Among the activities to enjoy are a day at the Horse Park, (riding, carriages, movie, museum, parade of breeds, gift shop,
etc.); visits to historic homes; seeing the local basketball museum and the Children's Museum; or an afternoon at the races
(Red Mile and Keeneland). A few local web sites will get you started on your activities.
