Elkins is a city in Randolph County, West Virginia, USA. Get out of town with these interesting Elkins side-trips: Green Bank Observatory (in Green Bank), Seneca Rocks (in Seneca Rocks) and Snowshoe Mountain Resort (in Snowshoe). And it doesn't end there: admire the sheer force of Blackwater Falls State Park, steep yourself in history at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, and view the masterpieces at Appalachian Glass.

Plan my Elkins trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

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.
