Thanks to our friends in Lexington for providing this blog to help our Traveling Tigers – be sure to add a few of these activities to your weekend itinerary!

You’ll be traveling East on I-64, but you’re definitely headed in a Southern direction to get to Lexington. Our hospitality and cuisine is distinctly Southern, and our history is truly American with the influences of Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln and the Great Compromiser Henry Clay.

Horses at Donamire Farm – Jeff Rogers

Missouri has Clydesdales and the King of Beers, but Lexington also has something to offer when it comes to horses and cold beverages. Come early and stay late because SEC football isn’t the only event on the books during the last weekend of September.

From historic horse farm and distillery tours to culinary programming and libations, Lexington serves up hospitality at its finest. You’ll understand why people say “Southern Starts Here.”

Historic Horse Farm Tours: Lexington is known as Horse Capital of the World. And although you may not be able to decide whether the rolling landscapes or majestic horses are more beautiful, there’s no question that scheduling a horse farm tour should be on your list of places to visit. There are about 150 horse farms in Lexington alone, many with grand estates dating back to the 1800s.

Keeneland Race Course, with its tranquil setting and lovely stone fences and buildings, is one of the most genteel and beautiful racetracks in the world. The next Live Thoroughbred racing meet won’t start until October and will culminate with the Breeders’ Cup featuring Triple Crown Winner American Pharoah, but visitors are welcome year-round to this National Historic Landmark. You can hang out with jockeys and owners as they eat breakfast in the track kitchen, which is open to the public. Or get an up-close view of horses as they go through their early-morning workouts.

Kids love horses – Lee Thomas

And the Kentucky Horse Park is home to more than 50 different horse breeds at work and play. The horse is showcased through daily equine presentations, horse-drawn tours, riding, museums and special events.

Bourbon Distillery and Brew Tours: Heritage and history is bottled in the region’s bourbon distilleries. From the large household name bourbons to the hidden gems of small batch distilleries, you’ll have an opportunity to see how they have blended time-honored methods, added a dash of science and restored spirits to an art form. And you just might have time for a sample – or two.

country-boy-beer-flight

Craft Beer Flight – Lee Thomas

Or, be one of the first to travel the newly created Brewgrass Trail, where craft brewers are infusing a local variation on the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage.

Beyond Grits: Lexington’s artisan chefs are constantly exploring and redefining Southern cuisine by adding a local flair — a dash of irreverence, paired with a passion for the land and the hand-crafted, time-tested traditions of past generations. But they also embrace innovation and twists that enliven in all things culinary in Lexington. Sure, they do all the Southern staples, and do them well. But in Lexington, Southern goes way beyond grits! More than 100 independent restaurants will help you sample the local flavor.

Check out more things to do at www.visitlex.com. Or ask a local. There are no shortages of opinions on where to get the tastiest breakfast, best burger or finest filet.


Welcome to all my fellow alums. I hope you love my adopted home of Lexington as much as I do.
