A Playground for Your Senses!
Look! Touch! Feel!
Throw yourself into Kentucky’s legendary Bluegrass Region! Sure, the scenery is spectacular and there are horses simply everywhere, but this is not a “look but don’t touch” destination. The Bluegrass is filled with experiences for every member of your family!
Come play where the grass is always bluer: Our backyard!
The Bluegrass Region is a vast and engaging playground, whether you’re a spectator or participant. Our back roads, byways, stone bridges, scenic overlooks, paddocks, pastures and vineyards cause visitors to return year after year for another look at a setting that ranges from stirring to serene.
• Horses Everywhere! Saddle up at any of the area’s many riding stables. Visit the stars of racing at our famous horse farms. The Kentucky Horse Park is all about horses all of the time. Take off to the races at Keeneland Thoroughbred Racetrack and The Red Mile harness track.
• Play Ball - Pro sports fans can cheer on the Lexington Legends minor league baseball team. College fans can enjoy sports practically all year ‘round, with the University of Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky University (Richmond), Georgetown College (Georgetown) and more.
• Fairways & Greens - Play new and classic courses, including two that have hosted Senior PGA events. Whether designed by Pete Dye, Rees Jones, or local architect Danny McQueen, they all capitalize on beautiful local terrain.
• Get Wet - At lakes and rivers in the Bluegrass, you can go fishing, skiing, power boating, canoeing and poking around in a pontoon boat, or just find a quiet spot on a bank and listen to the lapping of the water.
