Why Visit West Virginia?

West Virginia, nestled in the Appalachian region of the eastern United States, is celebrated for its rugged natural beauty, coal mining heritage, and outdoor recreational opportunities. The state’s capital is Charleston, while other notable cities include Huntington and Morgantown.

West Virginia’s landscapes are defined by the rolling Appalachian Mountains, winding rivers like the New River Gorge, and lush forests that cover much of the state. Its history is marked by Native American cultures, the struggle for statehood during the Civil War, and the coal mining industry that fueled economic growth in the 20th century.
