Get your bags, stroll out of arrivals at Lexington, KY Airport (LEX-Blue Grass), and collect your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you want to go. If you’ll be primarily driving in downtown Lexington, around 6 miles from the terminal, you’ll want something zippy and small. A compact car that’s easy to handle will suit those bustling city streets. But with a wealth of things to see, like the stunning rolling hills of the region, you’ll probably be clocking up a few miles. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make longer road trips more comfortable.
