Giddy up! It's time to gallop into Lexington, Kentucky, the Horse Capital of the World. The city is known for its horses, but it also boasts plenty of cultural attractions and a vibrant social scene. From the arts to shopping to nature, there's something here for everybody. Start looking for Lexington hotels today, because fun awaits you here.
Flights to Lexington touch down at Blue Grass Airport, which is a mere four miles from downtown. Once you land, you can hail a taxi or take a public bus shuttle via Lextran to downtown (only available on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.). However, with so much going on in and around the city, getting a Lexington car rental is a popular option, especially if you want to explore nearby sights like the majestic Red River Gorge, where you can camp and hike, and the various distilleries along the world-famous Bourbon Trail. Lexington airport car rental agencies are located right near baggage claim and can get you any type of vehicle you need for getting to nearby attractions. Once you have the keys, you can drive to Swope's Cars of Yesteryear Museum in nearby Elizabethtown, the Old State Capitol in Frankfort, or any one of the great golf courses in and around town. Once back in town, you can visit sights like the Mary Todd Lincoln House, Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate, the Kentucky Horse Park, and Keeneland (a racetrack with competitions from spring through fall).
From shows at the Kentucky Theatre to shopping on Nicholasville Road, Lexington is full of exciting activities. Plan early by looking for Lexington rental cars, hotels, and flights on Travelocity to get great deals, especially when you use the Travelocity app to take advantage of exclusive mobile offers.
