"The mountain state"

West Virginia is a largely mountainous state, cut by river valleys. With the Ohio River as its western boundary, it was once part of neighbouring Virginia.

In the northeast corner, the delightful little town of Harpers Ferry has been protected with national park status. This is where John Brown, a militant abolitionist, captured the federal arsenal in October 1859 with the aim of arming slaves for insurrection. His raid led ultimately to the Civil War.

You'll find many charming country inns in this region, plus spa towns and Washington family homes set in acres of rich farmland. Horseracing and watersports on the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers are popular summer activities, while in winter you can go skiing.

The New River/Greenbrier Valley region, in the southeast, is dominated by fast-running rivers, their rapids always challenging to fans of white-water rafting. The Greenbrier Resort at White Sulphur Springs is a luxury resort hotel, known for its famous golf links and as the site of the government's formerly secret nuclear bunker.

The states two largest cities, Charleston and Huntingdon, are in the Southwest. Here you can enjoy museums, art galleries, music and theatre and watch expert glassblowers at work.
