  • Wes was very knowledgeable about nutrition, he helped me a whole lot. Talk to him when you go in.
  • I LOVE Joseph Beth!!! It's the best place for lunch and some book shopping! Maybe even a little reading.
  • A must visit for local sights. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff, and great selection. They have a huge clearance section all the way in the back.
  • I've been wanting to visit the mothership for a long time, and a book signing by my favorite New York Times Bestselling author at this location was the perfect opportunity. Hands down the best book store I've ever been to. Joseph Beth is the way books are supposed to be sold anyway, independent and family owned, but this location has something special. My Crestview Hills store, and the Cincinnati Joseph-Beth are great, but Cathedral ceilings and multiple levels makes this book store second to none. Not even any Barnes & Nobles I've been in competes with this location.
  • They have a great selection of books and their children's section is pretty much unparalleled in terms of book selection, educational toy options, places for the kids to play in store, and the quality of the storytime lady that holds storytime there several times a week.

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
