This Self-Guided Walking Tour In West Virginia Passes 41 National Historic Places In Less Than A Mile

No matter who you are or where you are from, your next vacation should include a stop in Thomas, West Virginia. That’s a bold claim (that we’ve actually made before), but hear us out: it is convenient to some of the best hiking in the state (Blackwater Falls, Douglas Falls, Albert Falls, Dolly Sods), it has its own prestigious live music venue, and there are multiple excellent restaurants and shops full of beauty and local character.
