Beautiful surrounding countryside, nice safe city
Full of rednecks and churchy hypocrite types; few real Christians
In a nutshell
Bluegrass, Race horses, and bourbon
I had an awesome time at Red River Gorge Zipline in the Gorge. The guides made it a lot of fun. We had our whole family and the kids want to go back asap. You go through the trees and then race across this high place. wild.

Shakespeare & Co: Eclectic in the Extreme
This restaurant defies description. It is an experience and not just a meal. The menu is very very eclectic. Cheese grits to chicken satay; apple pie to halwa. The decor is OVER THE TOP Victoriana. Breakfast is served all day, and they serve food until 11 pm. That alone has...
Three Suns Bistro: Lamb, Ham, Turkey, Oh My!
My boyfriend's family invited us here for Easter brunch and I must say I was very impressed. Normally you order from a menu but since today was a special day they had a buffet. They had Lamb, Ham, Turkey, Pecan crusted chicken, tilapia, all the sides and salads and a huge...
Sarah's Corner Cafe: mmmmmm Ribs!
This is a little off the beaten path of downtown but luckily for me it is only about a mile from my house. On the outside it looks as if though its from the 50's and time passed this little restaurant by. But out front you will see a huge smoker where they smoke anything...
Riptide on the River: Come here if you want cold food and bad service
We wanted to go to a place we had not been with a few friends for pt 1 of my boyfriend's birthday celebration. I am the culprit that selected Riptides on the River. It is about 12 miles south of Lexington off exit 99. Walking in we all thought it was very nice with the...
Goodfellas Pizzaria: New York style pizza by the slice
Love coming here!! It's downtown within walking distance to a lot of other restaurants and bars. It has tables on the outside on the street so you can really experience Lexington. The pizza comes by the slice or pie. One piece is about the size of a 12 inch plate!! The...
Magees Bakery: Great home cooked food!
Great little spot right on Main Street in downtown. They have their own parking lot so you should be able to get a spot. Come early because once the food is gone thats it! The biscuits and gravy is just like something your grandmother would have made! I also really enjoy the...
Charlie Browns: like a library.....with a bar
Old brick building in the Chevy Chase side of town. Has a Mexican restaurant upstairs. When you first walk in its very dark. The only light is from the bar, the red candles on the tables and the fireplace if its cold outside. There are tables but also sofas near the...

Bar Louie: Bar Louie
Great place to go have a drink out by the water and fountains. Very relaxing atmosphere. They often have drink specials. Food menu is good with a lot of choices and on Tuesday nights you can get burgers for only $1 This is a chain type of bar but I still recommend it if you...
We had a problem parking in Lexington. On the University campus when we wanted to visit the museum and library. Because parking was so expensive, we left before we really needed to. But we really had problems everywhere.The website says: 1. VisitorsThere are four recognized...
I originally went to Sqecial Media for candles, incense, and stones. (Don’t ask.) I had always been a little intimidated by it because whenever I drove past I would see odd looking people standing outside. Well, after finally venturing in I was really impressed. Yes, they...
Hamburg Pavilion: interesting collection of shops
An impressive grouping of major department, discount and retail stores.
If you are in Lexington and on the East side this seems like a wide variety of shops. But there are four enclosed malls in Lexington and other shopping districts
University of Kentucky
We parked in a lot near the Student Union at a meter - max time 45 minutes for 75 cents. We walked to the Art Museum, and after some wrong turns, we found the museum, but they had no Carl Brenner there. Then we walked up to the M.I.K Library (which is NOT named for Martin...

Pedestrians stay alert
Lexington is a small town and crime in simply not an issue for visitors. But as many American small towns, most people drive even when they are only going a few blocks! If you choose to walk, be extra careful at crosswalks and intersections before you step out into the...
Scenic drive out Old Frankfort Pike
As you head towards the Headley-Whitney museum and beyond you will see a very scenic side of Lexington. Rolling hills, fences for miles, horses, and majestic barns. This is a relaxing way to spend some time on a Sunday afternoon.
