Some people have this fear of traveling to new places. Some people fear the thought of being disappointed when they arrive at a place after hearing so many good things about it. And nowhere is this more apparent than in the places that are not so popular in the United States. Take, for example, the case of Lexington, Kentucky. It certainly is not the first place that comes to mind when thinking of taking a vacation in the United States.
However, if you do a little research, you will see that the city has its unique charm that will make it impossible for you or just about anyone to be disappointed. It has two charms: The bourbon and the horse.
Not a lot of people know this, but Lexington is the birthplace of the bourbon, and if you do a little research, you will see that the city plays host to different distilleries, and you can taste the spirit as soon as it gets off the barrel. But bourbon aside, you will also find craft breweries in the area. If you don’t like the taste of bottled beer being sold at the supermarkets, you might want to try what Lexington’s craft brewers have to offer.
But now, you don’t just go to Lexington to drink and be merry. As we said before, the city’s charm lies in the bourbon and the horse, and while have already told you about the bourbon, it’s time to tell you more about the horse.
If you know anything about horse racing, then you already know that Kentucky, specifically Lexington, is the place that you go to if you want to see race horses. There are designated areas where you can meet celebrities horses and there are designated areas where you can learn about horses in general (Did you know what there are at least 50 breeds?).
Of course, not all people who are keen on visiting Lexington are enthusiastic about horses and getting drunk. Some just want to relax and be carried away by the city’s relatively laid back way of life.
So, if you are wondering where to travel next within the country, you should visit Lexington. Trust us, if you plan your trip without restricting your budget, you will have a good time and experience the experiences that will not leave a bad taste in your mouth.
