We’ve rustled up some of the best and most fun things to do in and around Lexington if you have some extra time while at the Reset Conference.
Kentucky Horse Park – this working horse farm is a must-visit if you are looking to experience the horse capital of the world. You can learn about the history of the area in the park’s museums, take part in your own trail ride, or do a walking barn tour to get up close and personal with some equine!
Keeneland – place your bets at one of the most famous racetracks in the world with lots of venues and land to explore, including wedding spaces!
Lexington Puzzling Adventures – “Take a fun and educational trip around downtown Lexington. Learn interesting facts, see the sights, and exercise your mind at the same time! Fun for all ages!”
Mary Todd Lincoln house – tour the childhood home of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln
James E Pepper Distillery – tour one of Lexington’s largest and most prestigious distilleries. There’s a lot of history here at this recently renovated national historic landmark.
University of Kentucky campus – check out the campus which boasts 16 degree-granting colleges and more than 200 academic programs for students to choose from. “UK is one of only eight institutions in the country with the full complement of liberal arts, engineering, professional, agricultural and medical colleges and disciplines on one contiguous campus.”
UK Arboretum – visit this public garden, maintained by the University of Kentucky, for some fresh air and exercise, or maybe to trade headshots with another Reset attendee!
Thoroughbred Park – go here for the famed horse statues that are famous to Lexington! This spot is a great photo op!

WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour – immerse yourself in some old-timey Kentucky music at this radio show that runs most Monday evenings. The show is hosted in Lexington’s Lyric Theatre and tickets are very affordable! Since the show is recorded for radio, seating starts early and audience members must be in their seats before showtime.
