New book by Central Kentucky native Audra Meighan celebrates Lexington’s fun and quirky attractions


Reedy Press has announced the release of “100 Things to Do in Lexington Before You Die,” written by Central Kentucky native and Lexington resident Audra Meighan. This bucket list is comprehensive, fun, and quirky, and celebrates the top ways to connect with the city and nearby surroundings.

Learn the legend of the black bear that lives in the North Limestone District, or take a mural tour to experience the city’s cultural side. Find out how America’s Native Spirit is made at Town Branch Distillery, and treat yourself to a taste.

In the heart of the Bluegrass, Lexington bursts at the seams with friendly people ready to share a good story. You may have heard the one about the bourbon, the horses, or the basketball, but the town known as “The Athens of the West” has even more tales to tell.

With “100 Things to Do in Lexington Before You Die” as a guide, visitors and locals alike will find new and exciting things to try waiting around every turn.

Take the family to the Kentucky Horse Park for some time with the Commonwealth’s most famous creatures, or enjoy a unique, allegorical game of mini-golf at the Lexington Ice Center.

Meighan brings her hometown enthusiasm to this indispensable guide. With her penchant for storytelling and fun itineraries, this book will lead you on your way to checking items off your Bluegrass State bucket list.

Meighan’s “100 Things to Do in Lexington Before You Die” is available wherever books are sold.

A book launch party will be held for 100 Things to Do in Lexington Before You Die on Thursday, April 2 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Creaux, located at 310 W. Short St. in Lexington. The event is free and open to the public.
