Lexington, Kentucky


Known as the Horse Capital of The World, Lexington has a population of more than 400,000. It is the second largest city in Kentucky, and no wonder the population is growing!


Lexington is a great place to live, work and raise a family. In 2006, Lexington was named one of Kiplinger's 50 Smart Places to Live. The list was based on factors such as cost of living and housing, quality health care, low crime rate, economic vitality and quality of life. We invite you to come see for yourself and stay a while.
