    A Travel Guide to Coshocton, Ohio and The Three Rivers Wine Trail

    I'm sure when you think of wine and wine country, Napa Valley, California comes to mind. However, Ohio is the sixth largest producer of wine in the country. Upon further research, I've discovered that Coshocton, Ohio was the number one wine destination in 2018. I visited and got to see the beauty the area has to offer, along with learning about wine from the wineries. Looking for somewhere to eat or attractions in the area? Check out the travel guide to Coshocton! #sponsored #coshco #coshocton #ohio #visitohio #travel #winery #wine #winetasting #amishcountry #cochoctonohio #ogic #grapes

    This post is in collaboration with Ohio Grape Industries Committee. Regardless of receiving a gifted item and/or compensation, my thoughts and reviews are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting brands and businesses that support Fabulous in Fayette!

    Growing up as Kentuckian, I’ve always been familiar with bourbon, since Kentucky is where 95% of the world’s bourbon is made. I never really knew much about wine, even though Kentucky has many wineries. I always assumed reds were drys and whites were sweets. But boy was I wrong! I was invited out to Coshocton, Ohio by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee to visit the cutest bed and breakfast and winery, Rainbow Hills Winery! I also got to visit the other wineries and attractions that Coshocton has to offer! I learned more about wine during my stay than I ever had before!

    Coshocton is relatively close to central Kentucky and would make for a perfect weekend getaway. Not only is Coshocton known for its wines, but it’s rich in history.

    A Local’s Guide to Lexington, Kentucky: Brunch Spots

    I started this series last year and they were always super fun to put together, so I’m continuing it this year!

    Everyone who knows me knows how much I love Lexington, hence why my blog is named “Fabulous In Fayette” and is entirely dedicated to it! Fabulous in Fayette is your one-stop place to find out what’s happening in Lexington on a weekly basis, where to eat, and amazing events that you can’t miss! Lexington is such a great place to live in – with all the culture, the amazing local restaurants, the bourbon scene, or all of the events happening throughout the city to keep you entertained.

    With these guides, I hope that you’ll discover a place you haven’t been to, or it will encourage you to get out and explore Lexington more! If you are a visitor from other city or state, then you’ll be able to know the places that an actual Lexingtonian loves!

    Each month, there will be a different focus. Starting off with the first “A Local’s Guide to Lexington…” of 2019, I’m featuring ten local restaurants that you must eat brunch at!

    The Best of Fabulous In Fayette 2018

    Happy Friday y’all! I hope everyone had a great holiday!

    Today, I’m taking a look back at 2018 on Fabulous in Fayette to share the top 10 most read posts of 2018 (as of December 12)! Quite a few of my posts from 2016 are still pretty popular, so I made sure to only include posts from 2018 on my list! The top posts included food from local restaurants and posts from three of my series, Street Art and Murals of Lexington, Kentucky, A Local Spotlight, and A Local’s Guide to Lexington, Kentucky! It was fun to look back and see which posts were getting the most traffic in 2018.

    If you are new here, I hope you’ll check some of these posts out, since it will be a great place to start! I think 2018 was such a wonderful year, and there were so many cool opportunities I got to participate in and many wonderful businesses that I got to collaborate with.

    Thanks to everyone for the support with Fabulous in Fayette, and I hope you continue to follow along in 2019!
