Sometimes called the horse capital of the world, Lexington deservedly features on weekend getaways in Kentucky for couples for much more than its horse-related attractions. You can watch these majestic animals in motion at the races, ride one yourself, or amble through meadows where more than fifty breeds graze. There are also four historic homes to visit on a romantic getaway in Kentucky, as well as the world's largest Shaker Village. Stroll through a reconstructed village comprising 34 buildings on three thousand acres. Don't leave without holing up in one of Lexington's top notch Bourbon distilleries, of which there are five heritage soaked examples to choose from.
