Long Business Description:

Prestonsburg, Kentucky
Take a peak into Appalachian living, where heritage is rooted with art, history and adventure. The story of Prestonsburg -- the first town established in eastern Kentucky, is one as captivating as the mountains themselves. Here, visitors become kin.
Nature’s Backyard
Follow the path of the elk or walk the winding trails of early Native American settlers with guided group tours. Visitors can take in the breathtaking views from any of the five bus-friendly lodging options. Those who prefer water to land enjoy pontoon boat tours around Dewey Lake at the Jenny Wiley State Resort Park. Afterward, replenish with a tasty southern meal, the kind grandma would approve of. Finish the night by witnessing the stars kiss the mountaintops. Groups who prefer stargazing with a side of air conditioning can experience a variety of exhibits and shows at the East Kentucky Science Center, one of the country’s most technologically advanced.
Mountain Music
Nashville may be known as the birthplace of country music, but eastern Kentucky is the birthplace of country music legends. Buses are welcomed at the “infamous” Butcher Holler and Van Lear coal-mining community, made famous by Loretta Lynn. Take in a play at Jenny Wiley Amphitheatre or sing along with some of the favorite names at the Mountain Arts Center -- where backstage tours are encouraged.
Battles in the Bluegrass
Prestonsburg is filled with the footprints of America’s ancestors. The Middle Creek National Battlefield is site to the largest Civil War battle in eastern Kentucky -- one that led Colonel Garfield to a Yankee victory and propelled him into his presidency. Year round, costumed re-enactors and the chance to fire a musket welcome groups to the battlefield. Visitors can tour the oldest home in Prestonsburg – the Samuel May House. The Samuel May House was the place for army recruitment, horse race gambling, high-society parties and masterful architecture.
Small Town, Big Heart
Take part in the Moonshine Hideaway tours and learn the secrets distilled from Appalachia.
The working moonshine still and live historian will thrill groups. Today, Prestonsburg’s streets and stores are full history, music, art galleries, bicycles and workshops. Groups allow themselves to catch their breath when visiting Prestonsburg. After all, groups never know what they will find when they decide to take the scenic route.
