There’s A Park Hidden In Plain Sight In West Virginia Where Three States Meet
West Virginia has a unique geography. Did you know that it shares a border with five other states? Those are Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Kentucky. While it’s not possible to be in all five of those places at once, you can almost be in three places at once when you visit the West Virginia town of Kenova. Located on the Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia border, this unique locale is definitely worth checking out.
There are at least two other places in West Virginia where 3 state borders meet, but this is the only one (as far as we know) that is clearly marked and easily accessible to the public.
If you visit Virginia Point Park, be sure to grab lunch at the nearby Stewart’s Original Hot Dogs or Griffith and Feil’s Soda Fountain!
