Charleston is the capital and the largest city in the U.S. Get out of town with these interesting Charleston side-trips: New River Gorge Bridge (in Fayetteville) and Beckley (Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia & Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Youth Museum). And it doesn't end there: ponder the world of politics at West Virginia State Capitol, take an in-depth tour of West Virginia State Museum, and get into the urban bustle at Culture Center.

The Mountain State
Located entirely within the Appalachian Mountain region, the aptly nicknamed "Mountain State" represents the highest state east of the Mississippi River with an average elevation of about 460 m (1,500 ft) above sea level. With an official motto of "Mountaineers are always free," West Virginia is home to a fiercely independent people, proud of their state's rich natural resources, physical beauty, and traditional culture. The state is often overlooked by tourists, and its major attractions retain an off-the-beaten-path character and exemplify a laid-back pace of life. West Virginians like to describe their part of the country as both wild and wonderful, a claim you can easily test on a holiday here by filling your itinerary with exploration of the state's green mountains, white-water rivers, and historical small towns.
