Welcome to Northern West Virginia!

Bordered by the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania to the north, Virginia on its eastern edges and marked by distinctive geography shaped by the Appalachian Mountain Range, Northern West Virginia is replete with recreation and leisure. Outdoor adventures in unspoiled nature await at every corner, including mountain biking, hiking, sport fishing and hunting in the mountain, lakes and river regions of the north. On its southeastern boundary lies Monongahela National Forest, a year-round draw for its ample recreational and back-country opportunities.

Encompassing a range of small towns and larger urban centres, including the northern panhandle hub of Wheeling, the valley river city of Parkersburg and the quaint city of Morgantown, the region offers historical and modern influences reflective of the state’s colorful coal mining, logging and musical heritage. History buffs of all ages will be delighted to uncover local heritage at historic sites, interpretive centers and museums. Mountain culture, Victorian influences and small-town Americana create an eclectic mix of experiences to please all the senses, whether it's exploring one of the region's artisan glass studios, immersing in nature on the North Bend Trail, sampling local and international delicacies at a charming eatery or taking in pure Appalachian sounds at a jamboree event. The state’s capital and largest city, Charleston, sits in Southern West Virginia and is an ideal urban diversion from the relaxed and rural pursuits of the north.
