A less-talked about state, Lexington is actually one of the most attractive cities in the heartland. With rolling hills of blue grass and horse farms surrounding the city, Lexington is well worth a visit.
Few things rally the city like a University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball game, the atmosphere is guaranteed to generate some excitement. Meanwhile the University of Kentucky's arboretum and Ashland, former estate of famous politician Henry Clay, are great places to stroll through peaceful gardens.
The off-seasons of spring and fall bring temperate weather and beautiful scenery.
