Deep in the heart of the Bluegrass State you will find the city of Lexington, which is steeped in southern history, yet full of all the culture of a modern urban center. It is the second largest city in Kentucky and known by some as the "Horse Capital of the World" because of the local obsession with horse racing and everything to do with this majestic animal. The city also attracts music lovers every year for the Festival of the Bluegrass, the state's oldest annual bluegrass festival that takes place every June. The American Indian Festival is another family friendly event, which returns every November featuring food, clothing, music, stories, and other hallmarks of this fascinating culture. The city is home to the University of Kentucky, Transylvania University, and the Bluegrass Community and Technical College. Study in our rooms with our free Wi-Fi!
