It's 1500 square feet of what makes the Bluegrass great.

The Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau opened its new Visitors Center Wednesday in Victorian Square.

It focuses on horses, bourbon, history, art and food.

Families will find interactive displays and information about the city.

The new center comes after tourism brought in close to $12 billion to the state last year.

And while it's called a Visitors Center, it's designed for the entire community.

Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau President Jim Browder says, "The most significant number that we have is that 34% of the people that visit Lexington are actually staying with family and friends. So the attempt behind the new center was not only to build it for visitors, but to also build it for Lexingtonians so they can continue to help us drive that economic impact and showcase Lexington as a whole."
