I'm not actually from lexington (for those who don't know, thats where the campus is). But my parents just moved down there about 5-6 years ago and live about 25-30 min. out. I've visited quite a few times a year. Its a beautiful area, right by Rupp arena. It has this huge, huge, I repeat huge beautiful fountain (you'll see why I felt this was worth mentioning). Its also right by courthouses, major office buildings, and also bars and restaurants. Personally, I want to stay in Ohio where I'm from just because of my boyfriend- but if I was able- I would love to attend. Lexington is a beautiful city with a lot to do. Also, students come from all over the country to the school(excellent basketball team stirs up attention). So I got the vibe that they weren't exactly sitting around doing line dancing all night. Lexington is a more big city feel, it's not country.
feel free to message me if you have any questions.
