Downtown Lexington Extends A Special Welcome
Take some time, explore our charming town. Discover our coffee shops, restaurants, and bars – all within walking distance. After all, networking and collaboration require sustenance.
Downtown Lexington has more than 20 places to eat or imbibe your beverage of choice. Restaurants, bars & cafes.
Most of the shops will be closed when your day ends, but before you leave on Thursday, stop by for that special gift or memento. See the main menu above to discover the vast array of our amazing unique shops.
Now for a few practical bits of information:
In-Town Lodging: The advantage of in-town lodging is the opportunity to walk to your conference venue (in-town lodging info). Also note Shuttle buses will serve the 7 motels that are a few miles away (conference & travel venue information.)
Parking: Map of Parking Lot Locations on VMI campus and in downtown.
Your first choice would be near the conference venue, Marshall Hall. Second choice is overflow parking at “Jordan’s Point” a park area adjacent to VMI.
If those are full there are 3 long term parking lots in downtown Lexington – see parking lot location link above. There are no parking fees. However most on-street parking and the other lots have time limits that are enforced.
Private Meeting spaces: Collaboration sometimes requires a private meeting space. Many restaurants and hotels (links above) have such spaces available. Also “Start Here” a nearby local business incubator has a small conference room and support facilities.
Hope you are enjoying your conference and short visit here.
