The Kentucky Horse Park

The Kentucky Horse Park is more than just a park. Attend a multitude of events like the Gun and Knife Show at Alltech Arena, Wrestling Championships, the Bulls, Bands and Barrels, and more! Want to see some horses? Sign-up to take a Walking Barn Tour to see the many horses and venture through the park’s history museums and view their latest exhibit – Black Horsemen of The Kentucky Turf. After you’re tired from a long day of exploring, settle into your camping spot!

The Kentucky Castle

Life doesn’t get much more luxurious than a trip to The Kentucky Castle. With 55 acres of land, the Castle tries to source most of its food from their own farms. All other food is brought in from local farms, so you never have to worry about what you’re eating during your stay because it’s all fresh and homegrown. Host a private event, take a tour of the Castle and even attend a concert. Your stay will not disappoint!


Off to the races! Giddy up and start betting your luck on some swift horses. Keeneland is more than just horse racing, it has been the Horse Capital of the World since 1936 and is still the Thoroughbred top auction house. Host corporate events, wine and dine, buy yourself a good-luck charm, and enjoy the thrill Keeneland bestows.

Distillery Tour

Cheers! With so many distilleries in Lexington, it’s hard to choose just one to visit. Don’t stress, you don’t have to choose just one! Take a tour of the twelve distilleries located in a 35-mile radius. Plan your taste testing’s yourself or sign-up to join the Bottled in Bond Tours to be taken to each location.

Horse Farm Tour

Did someone say horse? Horse Farm Tour, Inc. invites you to come horse around with them! Their tour directors know anything and everything there is to know about the horse industry. Visit some of the nearby attractions like the Keeneland Race Course, farms, and fall in love with Kentucky’s land as you travel from place to place.
