for better accessibly, service for travelers
The Lexington Visitors Center has moved to the heart of downtown Lexington inside Victorian Square across from the Lexington Convention Center.
Throughout the summer the Lexington Visitors Center will operate in an interior, first floor location. Julie Schickel will manage the operation of the Lexington Visitors Center. Schickel states, “The Lexington Visitors Center assists travelers by answering a wide variety of questions about things to do around the Region. An assortment of publications including our Visitor Guide, maps, driving tours, and brochures are available for visitors to browse or pick up. Our friendly visitor information specialists pride themselves in providing a high level of service and look forward your visit.”
This center will operate as a transitional space while the Bureau designs a new permanent facility in Victorian Square on Main Street directly across from Triangle Park.
Jim Browder, president Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau, states “We are delighted to move to the downtown core and be more accessible to the many visitors utilizing the Lexington Convention Center and the downtown hotels. It will give us an opportunity to interact with even more conventioneers and business travelers while continuing to provide leisure visitors assistance with trip planning. We look forward to this new chapter for the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau.”
