West Virginia Vacations

West Virginia is a rugged mountain state, the only one that sits entirely within the Appalachian Mountain Commission. Its motto, Montani Semper Liberi (“Mountaineers are Always Free”) is an excellent description of its landscape and attitudes.

Confederacy. Choosing to remain within the Union, the citizens of the area separated and created their own state. Today, active coal mining makes West Virginia a top producer of coal in the United States. But where this modest and, literally, down-to-earth state excels at is with its rich heritage. Annual festivals celebrate local folk traditions, full of fiddling, ballads and country fun. Between the outdoor activities, world-class restaurants and vintage shops, West Virginia is a casual destination for anyone seeking to be “liberi.”

Visited for some white water rafting and really enjoyed my time camping, floating the river and paddling like mad through the rapids.

One of the most beautiful states in the United States. Although it's very poor in certain areas, the people are salt-of-the-earth types, who will give you the shirt off their back. Of all the states I've traveled through, West Virginia has the best road system among the forty nine states I have visited. If you haven't experienced West Va., you need too!
