    Tourist Sites around Lexington, KY

    Headed to the Lexington area for a few days. Doing a college visit for my daughter.
    While we're there, we're going to visit the Ark and Creation museum.

    Any other spots close by? I'm not sure how much free time we'll have but if I didn't ask I'd regret it.

    Thanks,
    Zach

    Not much help here, but went through there many years ago, and it's a beautiful place. Lots of landscape, horses, pasture, bluegrass, old tobacco barns, etc. that we saw from the highway. Make sure you take your camera and come back with some pictures.

    Z - If you're a bourbon man, Lexington is close to the bourbon trail. A distillery or two might be fun to tour, your daughter might be your designated driver.

    Have fun in the bluegrass!!

    Check out the KY Horse Park on the north side of Lexington. Shaker Village is just to the south (beautiful place!). If' you're at the Creation Museum, you're not far from the Newport Aquarium, which is just over the bridge from downtown Cincinnati. If in Cincinnati, there's the Cincinnati Zoo, rooftop view from Carew Tower, etc. Lots of good stuff all around here!

    Are you looking at UK, Transylvania University, EKU, Morehead?

    My one son did an internship at HP when in college and all of the above places are great to visit. If I remember right there was a Jim Bean brewery or whatever you call them but it was very interesting on how they made the whiskey the information about the barrels was neat.

    Coming back in ‘19 with some buddies to do the bourbon trail. I suggested a distillery trip but the wife quashed that.

    Someone mentioned a Shaker Village. Here is the website. It is a nice place. South west of Lexington.

    Berea, Kentucky is another place to visit. South of Lexington.

    My wife & I do not drink alcohol, but we both enjoyed the distillery tours & bourbon trail.
