Owner description: When you are in the Horse Capital of the World, be sure to stop by and see us at our new downtown Visitor Center, 401 West Main Street, in Victorian Square. Look for the awning with the famous blue horse, Big Lex. We are open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Open Sunday afternoons from noon till 5 p.m. in the summer.) Speak with a Visitor Information Specialist, browse our informative brochures and maps, watch videos about the Bluegrass Region on one of five interactive screens and check out our Bourbon still and other memorabilia.

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.
