Lexington’s newest YMCA is recently opened out in Hamburg. We waited patiently for promises of beautiful equipment, more friendly locker rooms, and better areas for family. And we are rewarded. Continue reading “Whitaker YMCA”
Saw this today at the Kroger on Beaumont Centre Circle and am super excited about the possibilities.

Nestled in the industrial side of Lexington is the 26-acre McConnell Springs. This oasis has been celebrated by locals and is definitely worthy of the praise. A beautiful pocket of woods and walking trails, along with some educational material, McConnell Springs is a nice break without driving far from the city center. Continue reading “McConnell Springs”

I love car shows. I seek them out and happily Lexington seems to have people gathering to show off their rides every weekend. This weekend is Keeneland’s Concours d’Elegance. Over a four-day period, classic cars and new cars gather in Lexington to show off their beauty.
What a lovely find!

Granted we were here on a damp day where storms constantly threatened but it’s in the middle of a large neighborhood! Continue reading “Belleau Woods Park”
