Day 1 – Monday – Lexington, KY – Mary Todd Lincoln House – Woodsongs
Arrive in Lexington, KY this afternoon and visit the Mary Todd Lincoln House. Located in the heart of downtown, the Georgian- style brick house is one of the oldest structures in Lexington and the nation’s first historic site to honor a First Lady. Childhood home of Mary Todd, wife of Abraham Lincoln, the home was restored to reflect the Todd family’s residency with period furniture, family portraits and furnishings from the Todds as well as the Lincolns, taking you back to a time of social elegance and turbulent politics.
Check into your Lexington Hotel for a two-night stay. Dinner is included this evening at a local restaurant.
Following dinner, you have reserved seats for WoodSongs, a live audience syndicated public radio and public TV show, taping on Monday evenings from the historic Lyric Theatre. (WoodSongs is produced 44 Mondays a year).
Each WoodSongs broadcast features brilliant, amazing musical artists from around the world. It’s like a multi- media front porch that airs on 537 radio stations from Australia, across America to Ireland. It airs each weekend on American Forces Radio in 173 nations plus every military base and US Naval ship in the world. WoodSongs airs on public television from Los Angeles to Vermont and now each Friday on the RFD-TV Network. (D)
Day 2 – Tuesday – Keeneland Morning Workouts & Breakfast – Old Friends Horse Farm – Woodford Distillery Tour & Tasting – Lunch at The Woodford Inn – Kentucky Horse Park – Old Kentucky Nights Dinner & Program
Start this morning at Keeneland to experience early morning workouts and enjoy breakfast at the Track Kitchen. Your guide will get you a behind-the-scenes look at the Thoroughbred racing world.
Lunch is included today at the Woodford Inn in Versailles, KY. The Woodford Inn is located in the original Cleveland House, a home for orphan girls built first in 1865, razed, and rebuilt on the original foundation in 1926 that is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
Also included today is a tour and tasting at the Woodford Distillery. Take a guided educational tour through the Distillery that explains the history of bourbon, how they are unique at all five sources of flavor, the bottling process, and much more. At the end of the tour, guests 21 and over can taste the award-winning craft bourbon for themselves in the visitors’ center.
Returning to Lexington, your afternoon and evening is spent at the Kentucky Horse Park . Most places can only tell you stories about legends, but at the Kentucky Horse Park, they may just trot right by you. This park is hands-on, so you can touch the horses, smell the hay and see first-hand the majesty of the horse. This is a place for all of your senses! Be sure to enjoy the Hall of Champions Show, the Museum of the Horse, American Saddlebred Museum, Horse Drawn Tour, the Big Barn and more.
Following your tour of the Park, enjoy Old Kentucky Nights, an exclusive, after-hours program that showcases the beauty and serenity of the Kentucky Horse Park’s grounds – as well as dinner with a horse. Your group will meet two horses, “up close and personal.” This evening program also includes a catered dinner and some famous Kentucky hospitality in the heart of Bluegrass horse country. (B,L,D)
