Ride A Tram To The Bottom Of The Gorge To Eat or Sleep At This West Virginia Lodge
West Virginia State Parks dole out infinitely fun opportunities for making memories. And while most of us have likely at least heard of Pipestem, not everyone knows it has a special aerial tramway that goes all the way to the bottom of the Bluestone River Gorge. What’s more: there is a creek side lodge and restaurant at the bottom of that gorge and the only way to get there is by way of the tram!
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/
