Is 2016 the year you want to propose to that special person? West Virginia has some beautiful, romantic spots that would make a proposal even more special. Here are the best places in West Virginia to propose:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. The Greenbrier
West Virginia’s own luxury resort is gorgeous in the spring (or summer, fall or winter...whenever you want to propose, really).
2. Long Point Trail in Fayetteville
This Fayetteville trail is pretty short and easy and ends with a beautiful view of West Virginia’s most famous bridge.
3. Seneca Rocks
Definitely one of the best views in the state.
4. Beauty Mountain
Beauty Mountain in Fayetteville is super romantic, especially at sunset, with its beautiful views of the New River Gorge.
5. Laury's in Charleston
Laury’s is arguably the city’s finest restaurant, and is perfect for a special occasion like a marriage proposal.
6. Spruce Knob
Maybe it’s just me but I love a clear night where I can see bright stars. To me there’s nothing more romantic than a night sky, and Spruce Knob has some of the darkest skies this side of the Mississippi.
7. Cranberry Glades
The Glades is a beautiful area in Pocahontas County.
8. On a hot air balloon
There’s nothing more romantic than a trip on a hot air balloon. We have at least one business that offers that: West Virginia Hot Air Balloon Rides.
9. The flower gardens at Oglebay Park in Wheeling
This 16-acre, award-winning garden is filled with tulips, hyacinths, pansies and daffodils.
10. Blackwater Falls
The beautiful falls at Blackwater Falls State Park are a great place to propose.
11. The Ritter Park Rose Garden in Huntington
What more romantic place can there be than a place with thousands of roses? The rose garden at Ritter Park in Huntington starts to bloom the second week of May and is in full bloom by the second week of June, so plan accordingly.
12. Coopers Rock State Forest
This overlook has especially beautiful views during the fall and is a great place to pop the question.
