Lexington — 4 nights

Horse Capital of the World

Known internationally as the "Horse Capital of the World," Lexington boasts a thriving economy resting largely on its thoroughbred racehorse industry.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lexington: Versailles (Sun Valley Farm & Woodford Reserve Distillery), Frankfort (Castle & Key Distillery & Buffalo Trace Distillery) and Claiborne Farm (in Paris). The adventure continues: immerse yourself in nature at Kentucky Horse Park, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at James E. Pepper Distillery, steep yourself in history at Mary Todd Lincoln House, and try to win big at Keeneland.
