Destinations to customize your tour

In the heart of Horse Country, tours in Lexington may include stud farms, nurseries, training facilities, Kentucky Horse Park, or legendary Keeneland Race Course. Several popular bourbon distilleries are nearby for tours and tastings if you choose to make Lexington your home base. Travelers can fly to Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport for easy access or venture east from Louisville International Airport.

In addition to horses and bourbon, many historic Kentucky tour sites are in or near Lexington. These include the Mary Todd Lincoln House and Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate. You can also find Civil War battlefields and learn about Kentucky’s place in history.

Lexington’s Brewgrass Trail has also become a destination for craft beer lovers. Much like the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, this collection of breweries and taprooms has a Brewgrass Trail Passport to stamp at each stop and earn a t-shirt for your efforts. And be sure to enjoy Kentucky cuisine at our farm-to-table restaurants during your stay.

Fans visiting University of Kentucky basketball games at Rupp Arena will find plenty of things to do in Lexington before and after their sporting events. Championship level golf courses, fine wineries and vineyards, and Bluegrass music are just a few of the varied options. Or visit the rest of Fayette County and nearby towns of Frankfort, Winchester, Versailles, Lawrenceburg, Midway or Georgetown for more Bluegrass region tour opportunities.
