Lexington is known as the horse capital. It houses the Kentucky Horse Park, and is home to some of the best horse racing and equestrian events in the world. It is also the birthplace of bourbon whiskey. So calling Lexington home for retirement means loving tradition.

Central Baptist, St. Joseph's, and the Veterans Administration Hospital all service Lexington. We know of financial experts who can help you budget and invest around your pension. There are assisted living facilities offering all levels of care, for when you decide you are not comfortable living at home, and need extra care and community.

If you are still working, Lexington has a very stable economy. It is one of the world’s cleanest cities, with well-kept streets and public parks. Almost 40% of the population holds bachelor's degrees, making this one of the smartest cities in America. There are over 100 parks throughout the city, allowing for lots of free leisure time outside. The Henry Clay Museum is one of the historical sites to see. There is the Mayfest Arts Festival over Mother's Day, and the Woodland Bluegrass Festival happening every year. Different theatres house plays and orchestral events all year round. If you are into baseball you can enjoy the Lexington Legends play minor league. Distilleries are obviously numerous (as Lexington is the birthplace of bourbon), but there are also wineries and breweries to visit and enjoy.

Lexington is a liberal city in a conservative state. There is a relatively high gay and lesbian population. Although Cincinnati and Louisville is an hour and a half away, there is a small airport making travel easy.

The only downside to retirement in Lexington is the weather. The climate is hot and humid during the summer, and can get down right cold in the winter. Allergies also run high. However, if you are hearty enough to stand the extreme temperatures, Lexington offers some of the best retiree accommodations around.
