A Haunting Road Trip Through West Virginia Ghost Towns To Take If You Dare

West Virginia has no shortage of ghost towns. Since the mining industry has declined, there are quite a few towns that have been abandoned and are returning to nature.

This road trip might be your best chance to see the remains of several of those towns in just a short drive. The former mining towns in the New River Gorge area have been remarkably well preserved, and a visit to these little towns will give you a peek into history.

While you’re in the New River Gorge area, check out the charming little town of Fayetteville for great restaurants and shopping.
