City overview

The second-largest city in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky, Lexington is often referred to as the ‘Horse Capital of the World’. Indeed, the horse industry remains an integral part of the city’s culture, with a wealth of horse farms contained within the vicinity. The most famous of these is undoubtedly the Kentucky Horse Park, which plays host to the annual Kentucky Three Day Event. Located just outside the city, the Kentucky Horse Park is set in picturesque surroundings and boasts a number of excellent walking trails, in addition to a couple of interesting museums.

As one of the wealthiest cities in the state, Lexington has a number of exclusive neighbourhoods where the streets are lined with multi-million dollar homes. The shopping scene in Lexington reflects the city’s wealthy status, with many of the stores here belonging in the upmarket bracket, particularly those located in Victorian Square in the delightful and historic city centre area. Lexington also has a vibrant youth culture, no doubt due to the University of Kentucky being located in the city centre. The main campus area which borders the Downtown region is home to a fascinating selection of speciality retail stores and independently owned restaurants, many of which serve famous Kentucky food staples such as the Hot Brown sandwich, burgoo stew and bourbon balls.

Getting around Lexington

The central area of the city is fairly compact and therefore can be comfortably navigated on foot. However, there are free trolley services in operation at certain times of the day which link the centre with the University of Kentucky. Regular bus services operate throughout the wider area of the city up until approximately 11pm. Taxis should be booked in advance as they cannot always be hailed in the street.
