Get around[edit]

By car[edit]

A car is going to be the most practical method for getting around town and the local area.




  • Sabine Parish Fair is held during the last full week of September. Parades, carnival rides, and a rodeo.


Probably the biggest reason people visit Many is to take advantage of the outdoor recreation at Toledo Bend Reservoir. The 65-mile-long (110 km) reservoir offers a wide variety of both land and water recreation activities. Many often acts as a base and a jumping off point for people heading to the massive body of water on the Louisiana-Texas state line. Perhaps some of the most sought after activities at the reservoir are:

  • Watch a sunset on the shores of Toledo Bend.
  • Fishing for largemouth bass and crappie
  • Hiking and bicycling at North Toledo Bend State Park
  • Renting a cabin or parking an RV at any number of sites along the shoreline

Louisiana State Parks operates a handful of facilities on Toledo Bend that offer a wide variety of activities.
