Food scene
lunch only, local deli famous for an assortment of cheese spreads on each sandwich, tell “Dad” it's you are first-timer and you want to "sample the cheeses" for the best experience! Come prepared to sit at table in the old-school arcade shops hallway and if you need to use the bathroom it will be in the barbershop.

locally owned, very eclectic menu, woodfire pizza, chicken and waffles, great desserts. All locations are great. Downtown can be tricky with parking depending on the time of day.

Eat and Sightsee. Track Kitchen at Keenland. Visit Keeneland anytime. Early morning workouts are peaceful and fun and few people are there except Saturdays during meets. On those Saturdays, they have a lot of extra activities including a breakfast buffet (look up “Breakfast and the Works”). The Track Kitchen is open all the time and serves diner food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is ok, but it’s a neat experience to walk around and check out the nearby stables.

WALKING DISTANCE: German food and beer hall. multiple sand volleyball courts indoor and outdoor. May call ahead if you want to play as they have lots of scheduled leagues. It's a very interesting place... newly renovated.

pinball machines, and video games an old school diner feel. A staple on the University of Kentucky campus for years. Not great service but open 24 hours a day. Breakfast served all day and night.

The distillery district is the newest "cool" place in Lexington. Goodfellas pizza is a personal favorite and this area of town is really cool. Same spot as Tthe Burl Arcade also listed in my guidebook. Crank and Boom Ice Cream is also there for an expensive premium cup of ice cream.

About a mile from our house (the original location on North Limestone also great!) Awesome doughnuts and coffee! Try the maple bacon if they have it! Can't beat their glazed donut! Serving local "Nate's" coffee.

Sightseeing
To see some great horse farms take a short drive out Pisgah Pike! You will see the Kentucky Castle and some of the best horse farms in the area including Winstar Farms! 15 minutes from our home, turn right off Versailles road just past the castle.

When you get to the bridge over the creek, you can walk down the creek a ways to the right of the bridge. When you reach the top of the waterfall you can sliver down the trail (to the right of the falls) to the bottom of the waterfall. If the water is moving and temperature right you can stand underneath this huge waterfall. Warning...When you get to the top of the fall, the trail down to the bottom can be tricky especially if it's wet.

About 2 miles from our home. State botanical garden of Kentucky. Free to visit. Lots of native plants and flowers to see. Managed by the University of Kentucky. Several miles of paved walking paths on UK's campus. My favorite is the wooded area toward the back.

This place is a total throwback. Quarter video games all from the 80's and 90's. Skeeball. Pinball. A great way to kill some time. Go early when it opens (4pm) or on a weekend afternoon and take your kids and let them experience real video games like they used to make them! It is a bar so it has more of that feel the later it gets. Check their website. The music hall is in buiding next door. Lots of great live music there nightly.

Where to play golf
I would recommend playing at Kearney Hill. Lexington's nicest public course designed by Pete Dye and former home to the Senior PGA Tour. It's a links course. Gay Brewer Picadome Golf Course is the closest course to our home. Older course with lots of tall pine trees and small greens. If you just want to practice, try Man O War Golf. Near the airport and close to our home.
