My husband and I are visiting lexington early April for the first time. We are both mid 20s no kids. We love being outdoors, antique malls/shops, exploring new places, museums, history, good food that isnt chain restaurants, unique restaurants. We are on a tight budget and trying to do free and inexpensive things. we can only stay 1 night and want to do as much as possible. Here's the itinerary so far..
10am lex horse park
Lunch at Saul good
Visit Victorian square and downtown lex shops
Old capital antiques in Frankfort
Georgetown antique mall
Check into hotel at microtel inn & suites (price seemed good with decent reviews)
Dinner at joe bolognas
Shop at malls or head back to hotel depending on time
11am keeneland for races at 1pm
(Not sure how long races will last, probably eat something there for lunch?)
Explore nearby towns(ideas?)
Dinner at copper river grill? Food looked good but not sure yet, would like a more unique place.
Back to hotel depending on time, otherwise explore, shop ect
Check out of hotel
Lunch at ramseys diner
Head back to ohio? We might stay later if we find something else to do in the area. We would head back by 5pm at least.
So questions are, does this sound doable? How long will we be at keeneland? I also love pretzels, are there any restaurants that have them as a app? I haven't found any yet. Any advice would be wonderful! Thank you!
