Charleston is the capital and the largest city in the U.S. Your day-by-day itinerary now includes New River Gorge Bridge as well as Lost World Caverns. You'll discover tucked-away gems like New River Gorge National River and Culture Center. Escape the urban bustle at Endless Wall Trail and Cathedral Falls. Take a break from Charleston with a short trip to Sandstone Falls in Sandstone, about 1h 40 min away. And it doesn't end there: hunt for treasures at Capitol Market, admire the striking features of West Virginia State Capitol, explore the different monuments and memorials at Spring Hill Cemetery, and ponder the world of politics at Governor's Mansion.
