Welcome to Lexington, Kentucky, y’all. You may be familiar with a few of our claims to fame here. We’re the Horse Capital of the World. We’re the Birthplace of Bourbon. But did you know that we’re also the Best Place in America to Grab a Drink? (that’s right!) And our vibrant dining scene, which we call Beyond Grits, is garnering national attention with its unique culinary thumbprint. Not to mention, our locals are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
The concept of #ShareTheLex is simple – if you love it, share it. And we’ve asked locals and Lexington enthusiasts to share what they love about this town to inspire you to come see for yourself all that Lexington has to offer.
We invite you to take a look around and get to know Lexington through the lens of locals, writers, photographers, chefs and more. Read articles from local bloggers or browse curated local guides detailing one-of-a-kind Lexington experiences. Then, plan your own Lexington adventure and #ShareTheLex with the world. We’re excited to show you around.
