ATTRACTIONS

The Lexington area has many attractions for you to visit.  This is a short list of self organized attractions that you can visit before, during or after TRials.  All scheduling is arranged by the you the visitor.

Distillery Tours

When planning potential host locations for Trials, we anticipated a big draw being the Bourbon Trail so we selected Lexington Kentucky as many distilleries are located 30-90 minutes away.  We have contacted the top distilleries based on https://travelandleisure.com within a 30-90 minute drive time from the host hotel.  Each requires advanced reservations for tours and/or tastings.  Based on our anticipated size, we cannot simply schedule a tour for 100 people due to size limitations.  We recommend you schedule tours of your favorite distilleries on your own as soon as possible as they sell out well in advance.  You can of course create individual groups.  Tours last 60-90 minutes and are limited in size.  You’re welcome to drive to the distilleries, but without advanced reservations you will most likely not have access to tours, tastings, and in some cases the onsite bar.

Plan your tour of Kentucky's distilleries.  Tours are very popular and fill up very quickly.  We encourage you to book your tour as soon as possible.  All tours require advance ticket registration.
