Quaint, historic Georgetown!
Georgetown and Scott County, Kentucky, are ideally located just 10 miles north of Lexington, the Horse Capital of the World. The city is a blend of old and new, and Georgetown is noted for its profusion of historic houses and fine antiques shopping. Area back roads offer beautiful horse farms, Irish fieldstone fences, the meandering Elkhorn and Eagle Creeks, and rolling fields of tobacco and cattle. There are small, quaint communities like Stamping Ground and Sadieville. Elkhorn Creek, the inspiration for Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, is favored by canoeists and fishermen. There are dozens of golf courses in the area, including Cherry Blossom and Canewood Golf Course. Additionally, the University of Kentucky, Transylvania University, Georgetown College, a four-year liberal arts school and Midway College are all located in the surrounding area. With a thriving arts and events calendar, Georgetown continues to be a growing community where tradition meets innovation.
