If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many do you think are packed into a West Virginia vacation? There are amazing sights for you to enjoy while you’re here, but you’ve got to visit to see them all.
With 12 West Virginia state parks and forests in our region, we have natural beauty to spare. Among these are 3 National Parks set amid our wild mountain rivers. Rangers help enrich your experience with facts and histories of the area. Here, you can get close to nature almost anywhere you visit.
One thing you can definitely say about southern West Virginia: we love to celebrate. We put together some of the best festivals you’ll ever attend, and we bring the music, food, and culture to go with them.
Still more reasons to visit are the award winning vineyards and unique distilleries in our region. Add a side trip to these beautiful wineries and enjoy tours and tastings throughout the year.
From one side of the state to the other, there are terrific troupes and venues for the performing arts. While we’re famous for mountain music, we have oh-so-much-more to offer in the arts for those who come to visit us.
These mountains hold a tremendous history that we love to celebrate and share with others. From the proud coal mines that once spread throughout our region to civil war history and our wonderful mountain culture, there’s plenty to see when it comes to West Virginia heritage.
West Virginia is a major flyway for migratory birds. So it’s also a natural draw for birders from around the world. Anyone who’s curious about these animals, from beginner to expert, is encouraged to visit our wonderful aviaries.
Southern West Virginia is like nowhere else. From Lewisburg in the east to Beckley and beyond in the west, from Summersville up north to Bluefield down south, and everywhere in between, there are one-of-a-kind places to see. Enjoy some of these attractions on your visit to add a true taste of the Mountain State.
