geez, how to make us sound like total hicks over here in Lexington..... Okay, there is no doubt that Louisville is a much bigger city, with more of everything....but we are home to two universities and numerous other schools, have a Philharmonic Orchestra, numerous theatre groups, two ballet companies, a childrens theatre, a beautiful restored opera house, plenty of clubs offering jazz, blues, bluegrass, c&w, a 23,000 seat arena that hosts top national acts year round, and numerous festivals and arts fairs throughout the year. There are dozens of excellent restaurants, over 200 antique stores in the region, and multiple shopping venues, including the largest indoor mall in Kentucky. If you're into horses, this is heaven....not only the gorgeous farms, but Keeneland, the Red Mile, the Thoroughbred Center, and the fabulous 1200-acre Kentucky Horse Park, which will host the FEI Games in 2010. This is a city with a small town feel, no doubt....but we have lots to offer!

I agree that Lexington is a nice town with that warm Southern feeling and plenty of grits. The Campbell House used to be the class place to stay at while in Lexington but I am not sure that's still the case today.
