Summer is here and we are excited to spend time with our children. Although, sometimes it’s hard to find things to do. Here are 7 activity ideas to do around Lexington.
- Explorium of Lexington
Doesn’t that sound fun? This is a fun and educational place to take your kids. Explorium of Lexington allows kids to use their imagination and explore their creativity. There are plenty of exhibits to focus on important elements of a child’s growth. Some of the exhibits focus on coordination, senses or imagination. Others teach about geography and other school subjects. Explorium of Lexington never disappoints.
- Mary Todd Lincoln House
Would you like to learn about Abraham Lincoln and his family? Take a step back to the 19th century at the Mary Todd Lincoln. His wife, Mary Todd grew up in Lexington and her house has been preserved and makes a great historical family day to learn about this first lady of the 19th century.

Bowling is an activity that everyone in the family can enjoy. People of all ages and athletic abilities can have fun bowling (even if they gutter it a few times). Collins bowling lanes are conveniently located in Lexington and provide a great atmosphere for family night.
- Bluegrass Railroad Museum
The invention of the train changed the world. You can celebrate this by visiting the Bluegrass Railroad Museum. Trains are pretty cool, especially to many young kids. Check out the preserved railroads and take a train tour! It’ll be fun!

Lexington is the Horse Capital of the world, so it makes sense that there would be a great horse park to spend the day. Kids can get close to horses and learn about the history of horses and Kentucky. There’s also a museum!
