“Best Stop in Lexington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you are planning a trip to Lexington, stop here first! The staff is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We spent a good deal of time discussing downtown, bourbon, horses, and driving tours. The scenic tour that Connie recommended as we headed back to Cincinnati proved to be beautiful. She also suggested that we eat lunch in Midway at Wallace Station and it was delicious! Kudos to the Lexington Visitors Center!

“your one-stop shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I stopped in as I am preparing to move to Lexington. Lyn and Connie took very good care of me with maps, brochures, tips, etc. I also enjoyed the complimentary stickers, postcards, etc. While there I overheard a lot of folks ask questions about bourbon tasting, so they are well-versed on a lot of activities around town.

“Glad I stopped by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

The people at the visitor's center were really friendly and told us all about the area. They suggested we go see some of the horse farms on the Bluegrass driving tour which covers about 30 horse farms. They showed us the roads to take on the map. It was self-paced and free. Some of the barns for these horse farms cost over a million dollars with gold handles and ornamentation. As you can imagine, the tour was very scenic. We saw quite a few horses out grazing and the pastures were huge. It looked like a lot of upkeep and money. The visitor's center also gave us free Lexington stickers, bookmarks and postcards.
