Charles Town

Charles Town, officially the City of Charles Town, is a city in Jefferson County, West Virginia, and is also the county seat. Take a break from the city and head to Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and Berkeley Springs State Park. And it doesn't end there: trek along Appalachian National Scenic Trail, look for gifts at True Treats Historic Candy, and try your luck at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

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.
