Charleston & Kanawha County
When there is nothing going on, enjoy a crisp autumn weekend walking along the banks of the Kanawha River.
Or, perhaps a late season outing to Coonskin Park or Kanawha State Forest.
But, you are in for a pleasant surprise if you think the Charleston area doesn't have it's share of excitement.
Try a river cruise on the Kanawha aboard a past champion sternwheeler racer, the P.A. Denny.
Or, spend an evening with the Charleston Ballet, Light Opera Guild, Children's Theatre, or the West Virginia Symphony.
With a full agenda of city sights and style, family attractions and events, historic sites, shopping areas, sporting opportunities and scenic parks, rivers and forests, Charleston is both city and country, art and nature, high culture and down home simplicity.
Within a short drive you can take a pulse-pounding run on whitewater, a slalom on white powder or a hike through unspoiled forests.
West Virginia is one of the country's best kept secrets as an outdoor playground for both big and little kids!
