Known internationally as the "Horse Capital of the World," Lexington boasts a thriving economy resting largely on its thoroughbred racehorse industry.
Explore hidden gems such as Ashland: The Henry Clay Estate and The Great American Dollhouse Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Lexington Cemetery and Old Fort Harrod State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Lexington: Berea (Weston Glass Studio & Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea), Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site (in Perryville) and Ark Encounter (in Williamstown). Next up on the itinerary: admire the majestic nature at Kentucky Horse Park, view the masterpieces at Damselfly Gallery, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Bluegrass Distillers, and pause for some serene contemplation at Mt. Horeb Presbyterian Church.
