#UKLovesLex Lexington is a vibrant, growing community that has a close connection with the university while still maintaining a culture that students describe as close-knit, quirky, opportunity-rich and supportive of all things local. You get the best of both worlds here - urban bustle adjacent to campus and beautiful rolling hills and immaculate horse farms just a short drive out of town.

HORSE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD Being smack dab in the middle of horse country means there are plenty of ways to experience its beauty and charm. Whether it’s cheering on Thoroughbred racehorses at Keeneland, visiting the 1,200-acre Kentucky Horse Park or exploring one of the 450 surrounding horse farms in the area, there are endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the unique equestrian scene around you.
