If you’re thinking of making a vacation of it, there are lots of interesting things to do, see and experience in the Bluegrass region. Horse lovers can check out nearly 50 breeds of horses, plus museums, art galleries, shows and demonstrations at the 1,200 acre Kentucky Horse Park and even meet some four-footed celebrities in their own homes on a Horse Farm Tour. And if you like to gamble, you can try your luck at Keeneland Race Course during a race meet and/or take a tour of the grounds.
If history is more to your liking, you can visit four period historic homes of the area’s most famous citizens: Mary Todd Lincoln, Henry Clay, John Hunt Morgan and Joseph Bryan, a grand-nephew of Daniel Boone. Or you can wander through Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the largest restored Shaker village in the world, with 34 original buildings on 3,000 acres.
Last but not least, you can just make it a party! Sip and savor your way across Lexington by picking up the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® at the nearby historic Woodford Reserve Distillery or at Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Wild Turkey, James E. Pepper, Barrel House, Bluegrass Distillers and Town Branch. These aren’t just “visitor experiences” but real working distilleries. The only thing better than a good ‘ol classic is a bunch of good ‘ol classics.
Interested? Mark your calendars and and watch for more information coming from the home office. We hope to see you in June!
