Lexington has been called "the city in the park" because of its location at the center of hundreds of beautiful, park-like horse farms. But the nickname also seems an apt description of the cosmopolitan yet casual atmosphere of the downtown area.

Lexington offers a charming blend of big-city amenities and small-town friendliness. Before, after and between meeting sessions at the modern Lexington Center convention complex, you’ll find plenty to see and do. Beautiful historic office buildings, churches and homes; many of Lexington’s finest restaurants, specialty shops and galleries; and major performance and sports arenas are within easy and safe walking distance. However, one of the best ways to tour the historic downtown area is by horse-drawn carriage. The Lexington Livery Company offers half-hour tours nightly, weather permitting. Call (859) 259-0000 for reservations.

While you are in the Horse Capital of the World, please drop by our new Visitor’s Center located at 401 W. Main Street on Triangle Park. Speak with a Visitor Information Specialist, watch videos on five interactive screens, check out the Bourbon still and shop for Bluegrass memorabilia. Also make sure to look for the blue horse and download the free iPhone and Android Application: BIG LEX CITY GUIDE.

Dining, shopping, area attractions, events, golf courses, historic sites and the popular "Idea Guide" all on your "Smart Phone". Check out Big Lex's easy listings. View attractions on a map to easily find your way, or call/browse to find out more.
