Take A Spin Around Town With These Bike-Curated To-Dos

Story by Ashley Alt Happy first week of July, everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday. While you may be tired from the festival, parade, fireworks show and other local celebrations, we are keeping the party going. Why? Because it’s summer, of course. And there is so much to do, see and explore in the season that always seems to go a little too fast. Because it is going to be a gorgeous (and not so ridiculously hot) Saturday and Sunday, we think it is the perfect weekend for biking around town. Thus, we have provided 4 different weekend to-dos, all revolved around taking a spin through the city. Cycling Through The Centuries Tour The name of this bike tour says it all — you really will be cycling through the centuries on this well-planned path around Lexington. The complete tour is 11 miles long and includes 39 stops — 39! — encompassing all of Lexington’s coolest historical landmarks like Hunt-Morgan House, West Second Street, The Opera House, Dudley Square, Henry Clay’s Estate and many more historically acclaimed areas, as well as other sites of interest.

Lexington Staycation Ideas For The Fourth of July

By Ashley Alt Sticking around for the 4th this year? Excellent choice. You’re beating holiday traffic, sidestepping the dreaded car-packing chore and saving money.

So, how are you going to celebrate America’s birthday if you aren’t straying from the nest? We have compiled a hard list of fun activities for you to enjoy right here in the Bluegrass, and we’ve categorized them by neighborhood and most coveted pockets central to Lexington. Whether you’re partying with your friends or spending much needed quality time with your family (or both), Lexington’s unique local offerings will instill that carefree, relax-and-revive mode that vacations bring out in us. Don’t Miss Out on the Downtown Fourth of July Festival This is definitely the highlight of the staycation ideas, as the highly anticipated Fourth of July Festival is jam-packed with fun ways to explore what Lexington is all about. Nothing screams summer more than a good street festival, and when that street festival includes a Great American Pie contest, a 10K marathon and a parade, we’re pretty confident locals and tourists alike will have nothing short of a fantastic time during this two-day celebration.
