    I just found out I’m going to Lexington next weekend. I know it’s next week but I wanted to get started early and get as much info as possible.

    What is parking like?
    Anyone tailgating up there?
    Good places to eat?

    Any and all info would be helpful for this trip.

    If you are coming from Florida go north till you smell it and turn east till you step in it.

  5. Great game day experience. Plenty of tailgating. Really nice fan base. Parking is easy and plentiful. Stadium and campus are beautiful.

    One of my favorite venues.

    Maybe Jeff will see this and comment.

    Sorry I have no personal experience - but man - that would be a fun game to go to - and I know you'll enjoy yourself!

    How about posting your question in their forum? I bet they would love to offer some insight.

    Unfortunately, he'd probably just get the same BS given to rivals who visit this site asking the same
    "Stay at Bambi Motel, dinner at Cafe Risque, etc"

    The Bourbon tour is awesome. If you can pull it off, hire a limo to do the tour as you will be sipping at each stop.

    The horse farm tours and Keeneland race track and auction are also a great way to enjoy a beautiful day in the bluegrass.

    My brother is UK alum … so I’ve been to a few games there. Great tailgate opportunities and pretty easy to park as i recall. I only had good experiences with UK fans there. We are heading up this year too. My nephew is a freshman at UK and in their drum line for marching band.
