Lexington, Kentucky

Known as the home of Bluegrass, Thoroughbred horses and the country’s finest bourbon, Kentucky has a rich agricultural history. Lexington is home to both downtown skyscrapers and acres of lush pastures and cropland. As the first city in the nation to enact an Urban Growth Boundary, Lexington has ensured that farming thrives, its unique rural heritage is preserved and that the modern city boasts vibrant business and entertainment districts.
