Most Viewed Things to Do in Lexington

  • Keeneland

    by DR331 Written Feb 25, 2003

    Keeneland is a unique race track that has the best atmosphere of any horse track I've been to. Generally, you get dressed up to go, and you plan to spend your entire afternoon. The paddock area is beautiful, and you have a first hand look at the horses. Very traditional Lexington spot that's lots of fun! Entrace costs about $3 (for standing).

    LEXINGTON LEGENDS If you are in Lexington during the summer you should try to take in a Lexington Legends baseball game. Formed in 2001 the Legends are the Single-A affiliate of the Houston Astros.
    Congratulations to the Lexington Legends - 2001 South Atlantic League Champions (in their inaugural year).

    Historic Homes

    Visitors who enjoy looking at historic houses have several to choose from. Visitors can tour the Mary Todd Lincoln house located on Main Street near Rupp Arena from April to November. The home of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan is open for tours. This is in the Gratz Park Historic district near Transylvania University. The Henry Clay house, known as Ashland (pictured below), and grounds is in a park like setting with a garden and several outbuildings located South of the central business district on Richmond Road has a house and garden that is worth visiting because it has much of the original furnishings.

    Visit the Henry Clay mansion - Ashland. This is perhaps Lexington's best historical site. It is well preserved and offers a wonderful guided tour. Henry Clay is worth knowing about, sadly few today do. He is considered one of the greatest statesmen in the history of the United States. The story of his trip from Kentucky to Washington DC when he became a congressman is particularly fascinating. What now takes 9 hours to drive took Henry Clay much longer.

    Keeneland Racing in April and October
    This is an absolute must-do activity for anyone and everyone wishing to visit Lexington. The races are run throughout the months of April and October and are a definite cultural experience. Churchill Downs is grand but it cannot compare to the beauty of Keeneland. It is reminiscent of the races at Ascot in England. Women adorn often large and noticeable hats, while men too are often dressed to the tee. But casual is the normal attire for a day at the races. Placing bets on the race is fun, but this is a place to see and be seen. Plan on spending a full day here. And don't forget to try the Kentucky bourbon bread pudding.
