When one thinks of Lexington Kentucky three things tend to come to mind; horses, bourbon, and basketball – not necessarily in that order. Lexington is an incredible town located at the eastern tip of the Bluegrass Highway with a long list of things to eat, see and do. Nestled in the heart of horse country just 78 miles from Louisville, it is an easy and delightful car ride from all points, north and south.
Lexington serves as the perfect launch pad for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. You can make a dent in some of the 16 signature and 13 craft distilleries on the trail during the day and be back to town in time for dinner – better yet tip-off.
If you are from these parts more than likely you bleed UK Blue. Lexington serves as home for the University of Kentucky. And while Locals and alums alike support all Wildcat sports, it’s Basketball that is the King in Kentucky!
