9 Beautiful West Virginia Locations You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

Admittedly, if you know West Virginia very well, you probably know of these places, but if you are new to the state, or just don’t travel very much, these places may surprise you with their existence. After living in West Virginia for more than 20 years, it was not until I became the Only In Your State writer for West Virginia that I realized these places even existed. So, if you want to explore the state more than you already have, I suggest you check out these locations as soon as you can.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
