Why Fayette County?

Faith County... See our legendary landscapes, meet our celebrity horses on tours of magnificent farms, taste our hand-crafted Bourbons on the very spot they were created, immerse yourself in our sophisticated farm-to-table cuisine culture. Our downtown Lexington area is something you don't want to miss! So much to do whether you want to shop, or catch a Kentucky Wildcats game at the University of Kentucky.


As you might expect in the Horse Capital of the World, we have all things horses! Visit the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Track, or go on a Horse Farm Tour. 


With our quaint Southern charm, quirky arts scene and picturesque setting, Lexington showcases all the best our state has to offer. It's the kind of destination you won't cross off your list, because you'll want to visit again and again.
