The Tiny West Virginia Town That’s Unlike Any Other Place In America
By now we’re all well aware of the fact that the Mountain State is home to some pretty charming destinations. But there’s one small city tucked up within our Northern Panhandle that’s unlike any other place in our country. Giving you the best of both worlds, or should we say states, Weirton, West Virginia may surprise you with what it has to offer.
Found mainly within Hancock County, Weirton is the only destination in America where a town is surrounded by two different states on opposite sides.
To the west, residents of Weirton are just a stone's throw away from Steubenville, Ohio and to the east they're a skip away from Paris, Pennsylvania.
One of the reasons why Weirton is so unique is because it borders two different states other than its own but isn't a tri-point location.
Creating a five-mile long gap between Ohio and Pennsylvania, the small town is nestled right along the Ohio River and has wonderful waterfront views.
Earning the nickname for being the Gateway to the Valley, Weirton has long been known for being a steel-making city.
If you're wondering why this small town looks familiar to you but yet you've never heard of this place, that may be due to the fact that it was the filming location for the 2011 drama
Super 8. Many of the residents that you'll find living in Weirton have jobs in nearby locations like Pennsylvania, making for an easy commute while having the benefits of living in West Virginia.
