Some places feel like home as soon as you arrive. Huntington, or H-town, as we like to call it, is one of those places. We’re true to our roots — honoring our history and heritage through Appalachian craftsmanship and Southern hospitality — but we also embrace new ideas and fresh perspectives. Experience our open outdoor spaces, vibrant arts scene, thriving university, and fascinating historic sites. Let us show your group how H-town is redefining your getaway.
