Most People Don’t Know Giant Sloths Used To Roam West Virginia
We’re always amazed at how much juicy information about the Mountain State didn’t quite make that one year of state history lessons in school. But it’s understandable since there is so much more to West Virginia than anyone can ever expect to discover in one lifetime.
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/
