Car Hire Lexington

Lexington Airport Guide

Lexington is a very cultured city and a romantic one at that. You can see the sights of the city by horse drawn carriage, especially pretty on snowy winter nights or enjoy a show of movie at the renowned Kentucky Theatre. The city’s main park; The Triangle, is beautifully laid out and has illuminated fountains which surround the crest of the ridge around which it’s built. For a bit of history, you have two main choices; the Henry Clay House, home of the famous US Senator and also the home of Mary Todd Lincoln, America’s first memorial to a first lady.

Lexington Airport Directions

Blue Grass Airport is located eight miles west of Lexington and once you exit the airport in a hire car you’ll need to take route 60, the Versailles Road, which goes straight into Lexington.

There’s a full range of parking options at Blue Grass Airport. As well as long and short term parking and a distant economy parking lot serviced by a shuttle, you can use valet or cell phone parking. Less mobile travellers can use the designated spaces in all car parks for a reduced fee.
