Explore Blennerhassett Island By Covered Wagon For A Nostalgic Experience In West Virginia

When did you first learn about covered wagons? Was it a picture in an old book? A scene from a historical movie? Maybe you read about them in Little House On The Prairie and imagined yourself heading off on your own grand adventure in one. Maybe you still do have a little bit of that desire stored away in a corner of your imagination, and if so, it’s time to make that dream a reality.

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

And actually, while you’re checking “covered wagon ride” off your bucket list, go ahead and check “sternwheeler boat ride” off your list as well, because the best way to get to Blennerhassett Island is on the Island Belle, West Virginia’s one of a kind ferry service that sails the Ohio River from Parkersburg to Blennerhassett Island.
