Featured Attractions

West Virginia University

West Virginia University (WVU) is a public, land-grant, space-grant, research-intensive university founded in 1867. Often times high-school students and parents stay with us when visiting WVU to find out what it’s like to study and live at WVU. The Visitors Center, located on the Morgantown Waterfront, is an excellent starting point for campus exploration. Take a guided (or self-guided) tour to discover the places and programs that offer a glimpse of the WVU experience. Explore their libraries, Student Rec Center, grab a bite to eat at the Mountainlair Student Union, and even attend a class. Guided tours are offered Monday through Saturday, except home football Saturdays.

Valley Falls State Park

Valley Falls State Park is a place of scenic beauty and historical importance and was the site of a lumber and grist mill community in the 1800’s. A series of four cascading falls created by the dark, rushing waters of the Tygart Valley River distinguish this 1,145-acre day-use park. In addition to its scenic charm, Valley Falls State Park offers outdoor recreation and fun including biking trails, fishing, geocaching, hiking, museums and historical sites. Additionally, the park and river provide a popular, yet risky, kayaking run. The park gates open at 7 a.m. and close at dark.

Forks of Cheat Winery

Forks of Cheat Winery was established in July of 1990 by Jerry Deal. After several years of home winemaking and his recognition in amateur competitions, he decided to turn his hobby into a business. This little enterprise that started with less than an acre has grown into almost sixteen acres. The winery offers red wines that cover a wide range from bone dry to very sweet. Forks of Cheat Winery maintains an on-site gift shop and tasting room, as well as indoor and outdoor event rental spaces. Be sure to bring your family and friends to enjoy fine wines, a comfortable atmosphere, and awesome views from their deck.
