Lexington is a city in the state of Kentucky, and if you are like most people, you probably do not know the first thing about it. Well, we are here to tell you that the sum of what you can expect from Lexington can be found in these words: Horses and Bourbon.
If you are a horse racing enthusiasts, then you already know that Lexington is home to the top celebrity horses in the United States.

There you will see 50 breeds of horses, along with museums and art galleries, as well as shows and demonstrations.
Still, if the horses do not tickle your fancy, perhaps the bourbon will. If you know anything about this drink, you already know that it has its roots in Lexington, and you can find living histories in the form of breweries that are still actively producing this drink.

The trick to enjoying your stay is not to be cheap. Have the money to spend. There is no place for backpack or budget traveling if you plan on visiting Lexington. As we said before, the city’s main attractions are the horses and the bourbon distillers, aside from the craft beer breweries.
