West Virginia Romantic Getaways
Why not plan your romantic
getaway in the rolling hills and magestic Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia? Forget everything you think you know about this place. WV has some great things to offer visitors. With exciting cities like Charleston, Parkerburg, Wheeling, Point Pleasant, Elizabeth,
Fairmont, Martinsburg, and Petersburg visitors can find lots
of places to stay, cuisines to eat, and romantic things to do.
WV definately has it's fair share of cool towns and exciting cities, but West Virginia is an outdoor lover's paradise. This is the place to kayak, canoe, or raft down a lazy river winding through lush deep forests. It's the place to camp, hike, and explore the Blue Ridge Mountains. Summer, Spring and Fall are all mild and beautiful times to whitewater raft, golf, and fish. Winter turns West Virginia into a winter wonderland for Cross-country and Downhill skiing, sledding, snowtubing and snowboarding. If you want to experience the very best of West Virginia, then get out and get in to the beauty and wilds of WV.
If getting out and in it is a bit rougher than you had in mind then perhaps the best way to see West Virginia's extraordinary landscape is through the window of a historic and relaxing train ride. Across West Virginia there are tourist trains that allow visitors to get up close and personal with the hidden forests, magestic Blue Ridge Mountains, and crystaline lakes. Travel for an afternoon, a night or a week on Cass Scenic Railroad, Durbin Railroad, New River Train, Potomac Eagle, or the West Virginia Central Railroad. This is a truly fun and romantic way to explore WV.
