Lexington, Kentucky, is a truly remarkable place. Two-thirds of the nation’s entire population is within a day’s drive of Lexington because of its strategic location in Fayette County, at the intersection of Interstate 75 and Interstate 64. Additionally, the city is easily reached by air with non-stop flights to seventeen places and connecting services to hundreds more places across the globe. Blue Grass Airport not only provides these services, but also has one of the country’s most scenic approaches because of its location amidst many world-famous Thoroughbred horse farms.
The layout of Lexington resembles the spokes of a wheel with downtown Lexington in the center. Primary arterial roads stretch from downtown out into horse county. This well-established community was founded in 1775 and by 1820 it was one of the wealthiest and largest communities west of the Allegheny Mountains. Its lifestyle was so cultured it earned the nickname “the Athens of the West.” Today, Lexington’s primary industries are handcrafts, tobacco, bourbon, and horses. Major employers in the city include Tempur Sealy International, Valvoline, Lockheed Martin, Amazon, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, and the University of Kentucky. Additionally, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, the National Horse Center serves as the national headquarters for over thirty different equine associations.
