My friends and I are headed for vacation to KY for 5 days and need some tips on where to visit! We are planning to go to the KY Horse Park and Churchill Downs but need some other info/advice/tips. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you! :)

In Lexington:

Wallace Station for lunch! It's down the road from Three Chimneys (who do their own farm tours, btw) and you'll never know who you might bump into.

Ditto for breakfast/morning works at Keeneland, and just Keeneland in general. It's a must see.

Many farms allow tours...always call well in advance to arrange. We were sure to always tip our tour guide.

In Louisville:

As for Churchill, unfortunately with the recent flooding the KY Derby Museum has been (temporarily) closed for cleanup. Fingers crossed that the paper documents in the archives canbe saved before mold sets in.
