The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia. Lexington, Kentucky, United States, known as the Horse Capital of the World, is located in the heart of the Bluegrass region. It is the second-largest city in Kentucky, after Louisville, and the 70th largest in the United States. On January 1, 1974 Lexington became the first municipality in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to form a consolidated city-county government by merging with Fayette County. In 2005, the population estimate given by the U.S. Census Bureau was 268,080.
Lexington is home to the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland race course, the Red Mile race course, Transylvania University and UK, the University of Kentucky. Lexington has been selected to be the site of the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Lexington was founded in June 1775 in Virginia 17 years before Kentucky became a state. A party of frontiersmen, led by William McConnell, camped on the Middle Fork of Elkhorn Creek today called Town Branch and rerouted under Vine Street at the location known today as McConnell Springs. Lexington's economy has increasingly become a manufacturing, technology-oriented, and university oriented economy. There are three public universities, five private colleges, and two theological seminaries located within the Lexington. It is home to several events and fairs that draw people from throughout the Bluegrass. Taking part the first full weekend of June is the Festival of the Bluegrass, Kentucky's oldest bluegrass music festival.

Lexington is home to numerous museums and historical structures. One of the most famous is Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate along Richmond Road east of downtown. This two-story museum is a National Historic Landmark and was the former home of statesman Henry Clay. Another important museum is the Lexington History Center in the old Fayette County Courthouse in the heart of downtown. Lexington is home to the Lexington Legends, a Class A minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros. Lexington is also known for the best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
