Davis Is One Of West Virginia's Most Picturesque Small Towns To Visit Each Autumn
Although it may be better known as a winter wonderland, this tiny mountain town of around 650 people is the perfect place for leaf peeping.
Sitting at an elevation of 3,200 feet, this small town is the highest incorporated town in the state. It's no surprise that Davis is a popular skiing destination in colder months.
But its location, surrounded by beautiful mountains and forest, also make it one of the best places to watch the leaves change in autumn.
In fact, Davis holds an entire Leaf Peepers Festival each year in late September to celebrate this dazzling transformation.
Visitors can take a scenic walk, drive or bike ride in the nearby Monongahela National Forest to relax and unwind.
Within the forest, the Dolly Sods Wilderness offers some of the best leaf peeping in the state. Check out this view from beautiful Bear Rock.
The iconic Blackwater Falls State Park is also a must-see for fall enthusiasts. Have your camera charged and ready for some unforgettable views.
This green, red, and yellow foliage captured in Blackwater Canyon looks like it was plucked right from a painting.
Although the town is small, you will have no problem finding comfortable accommodations or a good meal.
The Bright Morning Inn offers simple elegance and a hearty breakfast in a historic setting.
While you're in town, be sure to take a tour of the several local restaurants, breweries and shops.
We recommend Hellbender Burritos, where the huge, imaginative creations will provide you with plenty of fuel for your next adventure.
Please note: Hellbender Burritos is temporarily closed.
With so much to fall in love with, this picturesque town leaves nothing to be desired.
