Explore what Manchester has to offer! Visit the official Manchester Tourism website for details on local area attractions, lodging and much more.
Hotel lodging can be found at the Heritage Inn Suites located just off the exit of the Hal Rogers Parkway. However, if you enjoy traveling in your camper or RV, look no further than Ponderosa Pine’s, Governor’s Campground and RV Park and Cross Mountain Camp Group conveniently located just outside the city limits. These locations not only have accommodations for RVs but some offer lodge rentals or primitive camping for those who want to bring a tent and get a little closer to nature.
There’s also a variety of cozy Airbnb spots located around the area.
If none of those locations work out for you, accommodations can be found in our neighboring town of London, KY located a quick 15 minute drive from Manchester, KY.
You can find the music festival located in the heart of downtown Manchester, KY.
If you’ve never been to our wonderful town, and you’re traveling via the Hal Rogers Parkway, take exit 20 and just follow the signs to take you downtown.
You can’t miss it!
