The Small Town In West Virginia You’ve Never Heard Of But Will Fall In Love With

There’s nothing quite like life in small-town West Virginia, where a sense of community is strong, and people are still in touch with traditions from generations past. You’ll find that charming atmosphere in Pickens, West Virginia, in the remote forests of Randolph County.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Visit the town’s website to find out about more upcoming events, and to learn more information about visiting the town.

You won’t find any restaurants in Pickens, so if you get hungry, pay a visit to the nearby town of Helvetia. It’s a Swiss settlement home to the tasty Helvetia Hutte, which serves traditional Swiss cuisine.
