We may be biased, but we think Lexington is the best place to live. Roughly ~321,793 people residents call it home, after all. With a population like that, where do all of these Lexingtonians eat, drink, play, and live?
We are setting out to answer that with LEXtoday’s Neighborhood Guides. Much like our past guides to Beaumont + Northside, this ongoing series will take you on an exploration of the communities that make Lexington feel like home. We’ll dive into history, things to do and discover, places to park, where to live, and more to showcase some of the best qualities our unique neighborhoods have to offer.
So, what do we define as a “neighborhood”?
While we love suburbs like Andover + Veterans Park, these guides will focus on small communities within our city (think: NoLi and Southland.) These small but mighty parts of Lexington typically feature restaurants, parks, living spaces, festivals, events, and more, that span a handful of blocks.
How will we choose what neighborhoods to cover?
This is where you come in. We are asking you to rave about all of your favorite neighborhood communities in the Horse Capital of the World — whether it’s one you call home, always stop by with out-of-town visitors, or daydream about moving to.
Are you intrigued by Gratz Park’s history? Do you love being able to walk from a Chevy Chase coffee shop to a clothing store in a matter of minutes? Ever wonder why Kenwick gained popularity so quickly? We want to hear all about it + share the inside scoop with our readers.
