Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Lexington Tourism and Sightseeing
Lexington's Bluegrass Region is home to horses, bourbon and history. The Bluegrass is the center of the world's Thoroughbred horse industry - where the top racehorses are bred, born, trained, officially registered, bought and sold, retired to stud and buried. You can meet previous Derby champions - or perhaps catch a glimpse of a future winner on the world's most famous farms. Keeneland Race Course, a beautiful park reminiscent of those in England, holds race meets in April and October and sales throughout the year. The Kentucky Horse Park features more than 50 breeds on 1,200 breathtaking acres. Nearly 95 percent of the world's bourbon is produced in Kentucky! Visit the home of Kentucky bourbon, where time-honored methods developed in the early 19th century are still in use today. Tour Town Branch, Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses or Wild Turkey to discover the heritage of the United States' only native spirit. Take a short drive through the picturesque Bluegrass countryside to one of America's historic treasures. Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is the United States' largest restored Shaker community with 34 restored buildings and 3,000 acres of preserved farmland.
