The town of Lexington is actually named after an area near Boston. Despite being a small town, it is a place that brims with a long-standing history and thoroughbred racetracks. The area of Lexington was settled in 1775 and by the 19th century, it had become a bustling city due to the first operating silver mine nearby. Aside from that, you can also find a lot of historic buildings here such as Mary Todd Lincoln House and Waveland State Historic Site. Known as the “Barbecue Capital of the World,” this vibrant city has been hosting a barbecue festival since 1987.
