Lexington-Fayette, also known as “Horse Capital of the World,” is located at the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region. The horse industry takes a great part in the city that zoning restrictions are in place to protect hundreds of neighboring farms. Its capital is set up to look like a wheel with spokes wherein the roads are running from downtown out into the horse country. Lexington is considered to be a college town, where almost 40% of its residents in the area are older than 25 and are college degree holders, as it is the home to the University of Kentucky, which is considered to be the City's largest employer. With its growing population, it has become a factor in the city's slow increase in the cost of living. Thus, it provides an ever-increasing influx of educated and young people into the economy and culture.
