Known internationally as the "Horse Capital of the World," Lexington boasts a thriving economy resting largely on its thoroughbred racehorse industry.
Popular historic sites such as Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill and Lexington Cemetery are in your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Kentucky Horse Park and Raven Run Nature Sanctuary. Get out of town with these interesting Lexington side-trips: Louisville Mega Cavern (in Louisville) and Ark Encounter (in Williamstown). There's lots more to do: try your luck at Keeneland, contemplate the long history of Mary Todd Lincoln House, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul Catholic Church, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co..

To see maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Lexington travel route planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
