Things To Do In Lexington

Nestled among rolling hills and the countryside, Lexington lies in the heart of the Bluegrass State. The most important attractions in Lexington are its horses; the city is famous for horse breeding and races. It’s the second-largest city in the state and is the home of University of Kentucky.

Every second Sunday of the month, Athens Schoolhouse Antiques Show displays antiques and local-made decor. In the early summer, the Festival of the Bluegrass attracts national performers.

For local goods, head to Clay Avenue Shops or Chevy Chase Village. To buy from national retailers, shop-til-you-drop at the Mall at Lexington Green or Fayette Mall.
