When I think of Lexington, I think of blue grass horse country, good food, courteous people, and the University of Kentucky which is the pride of Lexington. Lexington was a city before Kentucky was a state, and today Lexington's population has grown to just around 300,000.
Fun city with an excellent BBQ scene. Oh and there are some very picturesque horse farms.
The horses are beautiful and the farms are breath taking. The Fayette Mall is the best place to shop. There are many great places to eat very close to the mall.
