From the moment we entered the attractive visitors center we were welcomed and showered with help, maps, parking advice ( and a pass for three free hours!) and were generally treated like valued guests. The staff was stellar!

The two ladies who were on duty were informative and answered all of our questions. The visitor's center recently relocated and is now inside the "old courthouse" on the ground floor just a few blocks from where it was previously located.

This is a great starting and ending point if you are in Lexington for a visit. The Brewgrass and Bourbon trails can be rounded out here too.

Stopped in to see their new location in the Old Courthouse. Lots of local information available including things to do and see as well as maps. Should be one of the first places you visit.

Make a quick stop here when you first get to Lexington. The helpful staff will give you maps, suggestions, and useful advice. Particularly nice was Mrs. Frances White, Who was warm, friendly, and informative.
