Bluegrass Country

kentucky heritage Bluegrass Country guests delve into the heritage and traditions of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region on visits to historic sites in the Lexington area. Explore the life of Kentucky statesman Henry Clay and his descendants on a guided tour of Ashland, the 1806 Lexington estate established by “the Great Compromiser,” who was an early horse racing patron and breeder of thoroughbreds. Lexington sightseeing also includes a visit to Thoroughbred Park, with its life-size bronze statues of horses and jockeys. Living historians take you back to Kentucky’s frontier days at Fort Boonesborough State Park, a reconstruction of a log cabin settlement built by Daniel Boone and his woodsmen in 1775. An elegant lunch at The Mansion at Griffin Gate completes the afternoon.

Bridles & Bourbon Bluegrass Country and Thoroughbred World both enjoy this in-depth look at two enduring local traditions – raising and racing world-class thoroughbred horses, and distilling fine Kentucky Bourbon. Begin with an exclusive private visit to a Lexington-area horse farm for a behind-the-scenes look at how thoroughbred horses are bred, raised and trained, including a talk by a trainer or breeder. At the 130-acre Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort – the oldest continually operating distillery in America – get a unique look at the time-honored art of distilling, aging and bottling fine Kentucky Bourbon... and, of course, a taste of the award- winning product. On Bluegrass Country, enjoy a barbecue lunch at the Clubhouse at Buffalo Trace.
