It’s all about the #.

How funny is this video??? I’ve been feeling a lot of Lexington pride lately. How wonderful to live in a city that has such a vibrant, local community but doesn’t take itself too seriously. We live here. We know the unique and wonderful places to eat, shop, party, explore…because we dine, buy, drink, dance, hike and play at them. Why not tell people about these places? Why NOT promote tourism from the inside out?

#ShareTheLex, y’all!

P.S. Easter at the Ashland Estate.
