Within a day's drive of two-thirds of the population of the United States, Lexington is strategically 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), the Official Airport of the 2010 Games, welcomes travelers with one of the most beautiful air approaches in the nation. The Louisville International Airport (SDF) and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) are within driving distance of Lexington.
The city is set up like a wheel with spokes, with main arterial roads running from downtown out into horse country. Major car rental companies have desks at the airport and branches around town. Public bus service is provided by LexTran. Visitors also have access to a number of cab companies. A great way to see horse country is with a van tour company.
