About Lexington

Life in the Bluegrass State provides opportunities on many levels. You will find:

  • solace in the beauty of nature – rolling hills, plentiful lakes and incredible horse farms
  • inspiration in the arts, from handmade crafts to well-orchestrated musicals
  • comfortable, affordable homes, whether they be historical or brand new
  • an avid love of sports, particularly UK Wildcat basketball

Lexington, Kentucky, known as the Horse Capital of The World, 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. Lexington was ranked number six in Kiplinger’s 10 Best Value Cities for 2011. The ranking indicates that "Lexington's diversified economy has largely shielded it from the ravages of recession. The University of Kentucky, the area's largest employer, recently opened a major new wing to its hospital, fueling the already-thriving local health care sector; other big employers include Lexmark and Toyota. A commercial development department at the university and an active local network of angel investors provides fertile ground for start-ups."
