Found in the Appalachian area of South US, the state of West Virginia is ideal for a rugged holiday in the mountains. Offering the perfect setting to visitors who thrive when exposed to the great outdoors, West Virginia is often considered as one of the most picturesque states. Featuring snow-capped ski chalets, state parks, and white-water rapids, this state is also perfect for a long and relaxing scenic drive, fringed by mountains and rivers. This state is split into five main regions: Mountains and Lakes Country, New River and Greenbrier Valleys, Ohio Valley, Metro Valley and the Potomac Highlands which is one of the leading landmarks of West Virginia’s Civil War heritage. The Potomac Highlands also offers a dreamy setting for caving and skiing adventures.
