Lexington Flights Guide
Although Kentucky’s Lexington is not to be confused with the Massachusetts town that lent its name to the famous battle, Kentucky’s got its name from the battle in turn. It was at first an outpost, and the natives stopped attacking when it finally grew into a substantial population center.
Today Lexington has a crowded financial district with the typical tall headquarter towers, but it retains its title of “Horse Capital of the World”. It is not immediately apparent why it gets that title, but one soon learns about the numerous horse farms in the region. The city itself is made up of several historical neighborhoods, with various claims to fame. The Mary Todd Lincoln House is one, and the Henry Clay Estate is another. The Hunt-Morgan house is intriguing, causing one to reflect on the circumstances of the first millionaire west of the Appalachians, and compare it to the likes of modern LA or San Jose. Lexington has a pride in its education, and the accredited University of Kentucky Art Museum reflects that. Its collection is the best in the state.
The appropriately-named Blue Grass Airport serves Lexington. Flyers that serve here include United, US Airways, American Eagle, Allegiant Air and Delta.
