Known for natural beauty, premier horse farms, and delightful country charm, metropolitan Lexington and the surrounding rural counties offer a rare quality of life in Kentucky’s famous Bluegrass region. Newcomers can choose from vibrant new construction in suburban enclaves and attractive subdivisions in the city of Lexington or historic treasures and country manors nestled in the surrounding countryside. Quaint downtown districts, local wineries and distilleries, farmers markets, unique arts and crafts attractions, and a medley of outdoor and recreational amenities endear this region to residents and draw tourists from across Kentucky and around the nation. Tradition is a mainstay of daily life in this region, and a surprising number of businesses that are still thriving today can trace their roots back to the 1700s and 1800s. At the same time, newcomers will discover small but growing communities with progressive attitudes about quality development and strategic planning for a bright, sustainable future. From big-city business, entertainment and cultural centers to the charm of historic small towns surrounded by picturesque farmland, few places in America can rival the metropolitan Lexington-Fayette County region for beauty, accessibility, opportunity, and livability.
