Situated in the heart of bluegrass country, Lexington is Kentucky's second-largest city. It is the world capital of the horse industry and a cultural hub of the state. In many ways it’s just the right size, not too big to abandon the small-town lifestyle, but large enough to have urban amenities and employment opportunities. Future economic indicators are positive. Tech giant Lexmark and a major Toyota assembly plant in Georgetown are just north of the city and smaller businesses have found the area attractive, while university, health care and public sector employment are strong.
