    I have a trip planned to the Lexington area at the end of February for a week. Anyone have any recommendations for things to see or do in Kentucky?
    I plan on visiting the Mary Todd Lincoln House, Newport Aquarium, Creation Museum, and the Toyota plant tour. I'm considering going to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green also.

    If you go to Louisville, you can see the Louisville Slugger Factory. The tour is cool if you're into baseball. You can also tour Church Hill Downs and the Ali Museum.

    Lots of Bourbon Distilleries to visit and they give free samples. I visited Jim Beam and it was nice.

    Find a really nice hotel. It should be a decent rate because you're in Kentucky. Make sure it has a good bar. Then, don't leave the hotel because it's the best thing for 100 miles.

    I would say you could visit Lubes, but I think he moved to another state a while back.

    If you like:

    Pizza - go to Puccini's and get a half twice baked and half campfire (trust me)

    Nachos: go to Patches pub for Irish nachos (divey bar, nice people, awesome nachos)

    Beer: go to Marika's (they have hundreds) or go to Pazzo's the have 150 or so different kinds as well.

    Horse tracks: go to keeneland (although kinda boring at this time of year)

    Ice Cream: Greeter's (black raspberry chip)

    Fine dining: Holly Hill inn (in the town of Midway).....awesome

    Indy Cinema: Kentucky theatre (approx. 80 year old movie theatre, historic and beautiful)

    Breakfast: Stella's (breakfast in a small old house...they even sell cool t-shirts of the place)

    Vintage store: Pop's (if still around, the place was great)
