Kentucky, U.S.A.
Welcome to Lexington, Kentucky.
Lexington is the second-largest city in Kentucky, with around 310,800 residents. The city is situated in Fayette County and strategically placed at the intersection of Interstates 64 and 75. The city was founded in 1775, when William McConnel and a group of explorers arrived in the area. After being told that the first battle of the American Revolution had been fought in Lexington Massachusetts, they decided to name their new settlement in honor of the battlefield. By 1820, Lexington had turned into one of the largest and wealthiest towns west of the Allegheny Mountains, and its sophisticated lifestyle and culture earned it the nickname Athens of the West. Lexington is known as the Horse Capital of the World, as it is nestled among world famous thoroughbred horse farms and home to massive competition venues like the Kentucky Horse Park. The city is also famous for its high number of college-educated residents, and it is 10th in the U.S. with 39 percent of students reaching at least a bachelor's degree. Lexington boasts several esteemed institutions, including the Transylvania University, the University of Kentucky and the unique Bluegrass Community & Technical College. Lexington is also the home to the world's largest basketball-specific arena, the Rupp Arena, which is the home court to the university men's basketball program. The arena is the centerpiece of Lexington Center, a major shopping and convention facility located next to the Hyatt and Hilton hotels. The city layout is very distinct, set up like a wheel with spokes and arterial roads running from downtown into the horse country. It's easy to get around with the public bus service Lex Tran and the free Colt Trolley system, which serves the downtown area. The list of things to do while you're in town is long. The most obvious attraction is the horse culture, and you can see nearly 50 breeds of horses, museums, art galleries, shows and demonstrations at the Kentucky Horse Park. Or, if you fancy a gambling rush, head to the Keeneland Race Course and try your luck. Indulge in first-class cuisine at one of the many world-class restaurants, visit the many historic homes and wander through the restored Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill; the largest restored Shaker village in the world. Shops, galleries, restaurants, distilleries and horse tours Lexington truly has it all.
