Our City

Known as the “Horse Capital of the World”, Lexington is located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region.

Even with a population of over 308,000, it has a small town atmosphere with rolling hills, horse farms and Keeneland and Red Mile race tracks. Nationally ranked regularly as a top place to live and one of the safest cities, it is also within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the population of the United States.

Pride in UK and the city is everywhere. Listed as one of the top-15 most ‘sports obsessed’ cities in the nation by Men’s Health Magazine, there’s a spirit that you’ll feel as soon as you step foot in the Bluegrass.
