Summer in the Highlands is synonymous with the Great Outdoors. One million acres of National Forest lands await, with every possible opportunity to explore, hike, camp, bike, fish or just relax in a wooded retreat. Discover 10 state parks and three state forests, many with full event and program agendas. Two commercial caverns are also open year round for tours. Great shopping, two music theaters, fun eateries, regional festivals and music events and a variety of lodging make trips to the area complete.
For the history buff board any one of our six historic trains May through December. Visit rural historic towns and shop for West Virginia made products. Learn heritage through arts, dance and song. Discover the Civil War history. New this year is our regional Civil War trail initiative. West Virginia was the only state born from the conflict of the Civil War and will celebrate her 150th birthday during the national Civil War Sesquicentennial in 2013.
No matter what method you use to learn about this wonderful region of West Virginia, the trip will be well worth the effort.
