Prestonsburg was the first established town of Eastern Kentucky and the heart of Appalachia. Known as The Star City of Eastern Kentucky, Prestonsburg is strategically located at the hub of 5 major highways, including US 23 North, US 23 South, KY Route 80, KY Route 3, and KY Route 114 (Mountain Parkway).
In addition to the central hub for the region, the star also represents the vast amount of entertainment in Prestonsburg, including the Mountain Arts Center featuring national headliners and The Kentucky Opry, Jenny Wiley Theater which has been providing "magic under the stars," for decades with its classic Broadway type shows, and weekly local musical acts. Golf Course, which was built on a reclaimed mountain top, puts you as close to the stars as you can get with a radius view. An extra addition to a galaxy of fun is the East Kentucky Science Center & Planetarium with its exhibits, laser shows, and domed planetarium. For those who prefer getting up close and personal to nature, our Sugar Camp Mountain trails offer 30+ miles of mountain biking and hiking, in addition to Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, Dewey Lake, and the Fork River.
