Travel Tips for Lexington

New Earth Festival

by Krumlovgirl

Four times a year Lexington hosts the New Earth Festival at the Continental Inn. I just call it what it is-the psychic fair. Oh yes, there are other things besides the psychics, but they’re the most fun. You have a bevy of options when it comes to the kind of psychics you want to see, too. You can choose one that reads tarot cards, or one that reads minds, or one that is strictly astrology oriented. You can even have a photo taken of your aura if you want to! (I’ve never done it. But it’s there.) Readings cost $25 for 15 minutes, which isn’t a great deal but if they’re not busy sometimes you can stay longer than 15.

If you don’t want to get a reading, you can go shopping. All of your Wicca, Pagan, and Druid needs can be met from the vendors. They sell everything from stones to herbs to pendants to books. And bumper stickers. I love the bumper stickers.

They also have little seminars that go on throughout the weekend. You can attend one on dream analysis, ghost watching, or increasing your psychic powers.

The cost of the fair is $10 per person, although if you bring a canned good it drops to $5. Admission is good for the whole weekend. Check their website for specific dates. They usually run in May, July, October, and February.

Surprisingly good pizza

by rexvaughan about La Gormet Pizza

This place definitely qualifies as a "hole-in-the-wall" kind of pizza joint but their pizza is really quite tasty. We were looking for something light so stopped for a small salad and some pizza. I was impressed when I saw that they were tossing the dough and placing ingredients on it as I was afraid they might be pulling it out of the freezer. Nothing fancy here but a very edible light meal. It is nicely located just near Rupp Arena and the Lexington Center. They also have on-line order capability.

50's Nostalgia

by Ky_Happy_Dad about The Parkette Drive-In

Authentic drive-in similar to that in the movie American Graffiti. The late Joe Smiley opened the restaurant in 1951 on a gravel road off Liberty Road, years before there was a New Circle Road. The resturant unexpectedly closed but has been reopened by a group of businessmen who wanted to save this local landmark.

With its carhops, double-decker Poor Boy hamburgers and distinctive neon sign, the Parkette will take you back to the days poodle skirts, cars with lots of chrome and fins on the back, and simple box lunches without happy toy treats for the kids. Frankly, the food is only average (which is the true with most fast-food restaurants). But it is fun to come here on Friday nights when bikers and members of car clubs bring their hot rods and restored antique cars from the 1950's. See photos and story about reopening on contact information below.

Kentucky Horse Park

by Krumlovgirl

The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm with 1,200 acres surrounded by 30 miles of white fencing. It features two museums, twin theaters and nearly 50 different breeds of horses. You can see all sorts of horse-related activities, from horse shows and competitions to plowing. You can also take rides, including ponies for the little ones, and horse and buggy rides.

You really need to check out their website for an updated schedule because there is always something going on. During Christmas they have a whole Christmas light extravaganza that’s a pretty big deal around here. So big, in fact, that the local radio stations give out tickets as “prizes.”

March 15 - October 31: Open 7 days a week, 9 am - 5 pm
November 1 - March 14: Open Wednesday -Sunday, 9 am - 5 pm

CLOSED
Monday and Tuesday, November 1 - March 15 Thanksgiving Eve & Day, Christmas Eve & Day, New Year’s Eve & Day

Public Art

by Ky_Happy_Dad

A few years ago we enjoyed a 'Horse Mania' public art event. The horses were auctioned at Keeneland to raise money for charity. Successful bidders may leave a few of these horses on display around Lexington. This year doors from an old demolished public housing project have been painted by local artists and are found throughout the downtown area.
