Traveling to Lexington

Within a day's drive of two-thirds of the population of the United States, Lexington is located at the intersection of interstates 64 and 75 in Fayette County, Kentucky. Lexington is accessible by air with approximately 100 direct and nonstop flights. Nestled among world famous thoroughbred horse farms, Blue Grass Airport (LEX) welcomes travelers with one of the most beautiful air approaches in the nation. Other nearby airport options include Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Louisville International Airport (SDF), which are both around an 80 mile drive.
