We were glad to stop by and get a helping hand with our visit to Lexington. We had limited time but wanted to see a few sites. Hence, we got good information about the university and a walk around downtown by the Hilton.

There isn't too much to this Visitors' Center, but it is very cute, with some little exhibits and a few local souvenirs. It was a nice place to drop in quickly, but don't make a special trip. Staff is gracious and very helpful.
