Coming and Going in the Mountain State


As West Virginia celebrates its 150th birthday, tens of thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America will travel to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Beckley. And with all there is to see and do throughout the Mountain State, getting there can be more than half the fun!


Experience the opulent splendor and impeccable service of The Greenbrier, the legendary resort at White Sulphur Springs near Lewisburg. Quaint shops and restaurants dot the historic downtown area.


Enjoy hiking, biking and rock climbing amid the breathtaking beauty of Coopers Rock State Park, near Morgantown. Or browse downtown Morgantown’s eclectic shops and restaurants.


Travel back in time at Wheeling’s Historical WV Independence Hall, where West Virginia became a state. Challenge yourself with world-class golf at Oglebay Resort, where you’ll also fi nd a zoo with over 80 species of animals nestled among 30 acres of lush hills and valleys.


At Harpers Ferry National Historic Park, at the confl uence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers, you’ll see where abolitionist John Brown attempted to seize the United States Federal Arsenal for an armed uprising against slavery. Stroll picturesque streets, explore historic battlefi elds or hike winding trails.


Parkersburg’s rich history, much of it defi ned by the birth of the oil and gas industry, is faithfully retold at captivating museums and historic areas. Visit Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park, the site of the alleged plot by Aaron Burr and Harman Blennerhassett to establish a southwest empire. The Blennerhassett Mansion has been restored and the island offers narrated wagon rides and hiking trails.


At Heritage Farm in Huntington, you can see what life was like in pioneer days. A one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shops, country stores and log homes depict life “back then.” You’ll also learn about major inventions that helped create much of the quality of life we enjoy today.
