I'm planning a surprise trip for my husband for his birthday a day at Keeneland on the day of the Blue Grass Stakes in April. Planning on driving in Friday around lunch and I am thinking of taking him to Woodford Reserve for a tour. Would like a nicer, non chain restaurant for dinner and I would love some suggestions. Saturday will be the day at the racetrack. Sunday we will head back home. Is there anything that is a must do while we are here? Friday afternoon we can do anything, I just thought a bourbon distillery tour would be fun. I've read great reviews on woodford but am open to others.
I would like a nicer hotel around $200 or less per night. I know I need to book pretty quickly so I get a room. Looking at The Embassy Suites. I think the Hyatt downtown is already sold out. I'm not too particular on location unless y'all tell me staying downtown is a must. Speaking of downtown, is it a city with a lot to offer in terms of shops/restaurants? We live in Atlanta and our downtown is not any of those things. We do have great areas like that but in other parts of the city. If there are spots like that around Lex that you think would be great, let me know.
Any other tips/things I should consider, please let me know. Thanks in advance!! Lisa
