Lexington is a wonderful place to live: a mid-sized metropolitan city bordered by rolling horse farms and home to thoroughbred racing at Keeneland Race Track. It’s a great environment for hiking, biking and enjoying the great outdoors. Lexington also offers theater options, a variety of musical venues, and a great selection of movies and nightlife.
