Lexington, Kentucky, has been dubbed the “Horse Capital of the World,” known for its famed equestrian attractions at the heart of the state’s Bluegrass region.
Draws to Lexington include The Red Mile racetrack and the Kentucky Horse Park, and of course, the famed Keeneland Race Course with its accompanying auction complex. But it’s not just Thoroughbreds that bring in horse-lovers; Lexington is also home to the American Saddlebred Horse Association.
While horses bring a lot of tourists to Lexington, the majestic creatures aren’t the only reason folks come. The city claims it is the best place in America to grab a drink, with fifteen distilleries within 45 miles of downtown as part of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
The city of more than 322,000 people also carries the vibe of a college town as home to the University of Kentucky, and offers an array of parks, museums, and historical sites.
