With a growing population of just under 300,000 people, Lexington combines a balance of metropolitan life with small-town, Southern charm. Three Fortune 500 companies call Lexington home, while Toyota Motor Manufacturing’s largest U.S. assembly plant is located in nearby Georgetown. The city’s largest employer is the University of Kentucky, and Lexington is also home to Transylvania University.
Known as the “Horse Capital of the World,” Lexington is surrounded by acres of green, rolling horse farms. It is home to Keeneland and the Red Mile, two of the country’s premiere horse tracks, as well as the Kentucky Horse Park, host of the annual Rolex Three-Day Event and the site of the 2010 World Equestrian Games. The city also features several nature preserves, including Raven Run Nature Sanctuary and McConnell Springs, and regularly hosts a number of holiday festivals and events, including the Festival of the Bluegrass, the oldest bluegrass music festival in the state. Lexington boasts many historical landmarks, such as the home and original law office of statesman Henry Clay and the Mary Todd Lincoln House, the family home of Abraham Lincoln’s wife. In addition to its world class equine events, Lexington enjoys minor league baseball with the Lexington Legends, and of course the University of Kentucky’s many sports teams, including what is widely acknowledged as one of the most successful college basketball programs of all time.
