There’s A Magical Trolley Ride In West Virginia That Most People Don’t Know About
We previously highlighted some of the attractions around Oglebay Resort, but there’s a new reason to visit again this coming weekend. Starting November 11th, the park comes alive with an incredible holiday light display…and you can take a trolley ride to fully sit back and enjoy the show.
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/
Here’s a video from last year at Oglebay that shows more of the light displays, as well as additional attractions around the resort.
The Winter Festival of Lights is viewable Sunday through Thursday until 10:00 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday until 11:00 p.m. A per car donation is requested and is valid for the entire festival season. Trolley tours are offered several times each night beginning at Wilson Lodge.
Saturdays are very popular nights to visit the light show. Because of this, long lines should be expected and wait times can be long. Please visit us Sundays through Friday to avoid extended wait times.
Oglebay Resort & Conference Center is located at 465 Lodge Drive, Wheeling, WV 26003
