Lexington Holidays

Horse Capital of the World

Nestled in the heart of Kentucky’s beautiful Bluegrass Region this cosmopolitan city offers the perfect blend of city and country.

Lexington’s historic downtown area offers a mix of charming neighbourhoods rich with art galleries, parks, theatres and restaurants with one of the largest malls in the State just a short drive away. Venture just a few minutes outside of the centre of Lexington and you will discover acres upon acres of pristine pastureland, and a quintessential view of the Southern countryside complete with white fences, impressive barns, and hundreds of horse farms. There’s a reason Lexington is known as the Horse Capital of the world and there are plenty of ways to see horses, from getting up close to former champions at the Kentucky Horse Park, to all the action at Keeneland Race Course and much more.
