The only distillery close to I-75 is Woodford Reserve. It has a very nice visitors center offering tours, food, a gift shop and samples. It is just north of Versailles, Ky.

Also close to Lexington at the juction of I-75 and I-64 is the Kentucky Horse Park. If you like horses of any breed, this park may interest you. http://kyhorsepark.com/

About forty miles south of Lexinton is Berea. They have a fine Ky Arts and Crafts center.

To keep this post motorcycle related, at London, Ky there is a well stocked leather shop.
