What to Do in Lexington
Once you’ve landed worry-free in Lexington with our charter jet services, you’ll be ready to satisfy your cravings and experience southern hospitality.
Best Places to Eat
The Distillery District is a great destination for an all-encompassing mouth-watering experience with multiple distilleries, breweries, music, and great food including Goodfellas Pizzeria which serves New York-style pizza. You can’t go wrong with Nonna’s pie or Paulie’s favorite. Finish off your favorite piece of pizza with their cannolis, they’re a must-have.
We also recommend Smithtown Seafood. It’s a farm-to-table adventure that serves both creative and traditional dishes including wild-caught fish, fish tacos, fresh-shucked oysters, ethnic tilapia dishes, and more. Enjoy a cold, frosted glass of beer at West Sixth Brewery, its adjoining establishment.
Blue Door Smokehouse offers fresh smoked BBQ meats and classic sides. The food is delicious, and the service is great! Walk into an aromatic, flavorful experience and finish off your brisket, pork, chicken, ribs, or sausage with their fabulous sauce options.
Best Places to Stay
The best area to stay in Lexington, Kentucky is downtown once you’ve disembarked from one of our charter jets. The Hyatt Place is close to Keeneland Race Track and Kentucky Horse Park, Rupp Arena, and Lexington Center (if you’re headed there for a work event). Enjoy local adventures with this convenient location near shopping and restaurants.
The Sire Hotel is a superb boutique hotel offering comfort and elegance in a historic area. Relax by the firepit on the garden terrace in the beautiful fall evening weather. You will experience true southern charm here.
For a traditional, southern stay, The Campbell House is a historic hotel with an equestrian heritage. Make sure to enjoy the Rackhouse Tavern, a part of the Bourbon Trail, that offers over 300 bourbons and local brews on tap.
Sometimes we think Lexington may be one of the most underrated cities. Home to rolling hills, gorgeous horse farms and racetracks, tons of wineries and distilleries, and a city brimming with history and art.
Lexington is home to the 1,200-acre Kentucky Horse Park where you can meet horse champions, ride horses, see live shows and explore equestrian history. Additionally, the Keeneland track is only open two months of the year: April and October. So, it’s the perfect time of the year to watch the horses race.
Minutes from the center of the city, you’ll find picturesque bourbon distilleries in historic settings. Lexington, Kentucky is the birthplace of bourbon and is still producing quality products that are enjoyed around the world. Take a Bourbon tour and visit some of the most famous bourbon makers in the state like Four Roses, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, and Buffalo Trace. Or visit a few of our personal favorites:
- Lux Row Distillers (on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail in Bardstown, KY)
- Limestone Branch Distillery (on the Kentucky Craft Bourbon Trail in Lebanon, KY)
- Bluegrass Distillers (known for Kentucky-grown Blue Corn Bourbon)
Lexington is more than just bourbon and horses though. Fall is the perfect time to fly with us to explore the city that is filled and surrounded by colorful autumn foliage. Downtown Lexington looks like a storybook in the fall.
