“Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah Valley.” The words from John Denver’s “Country Roads” most aptly describes the breathtaking natural beauty present in West Virginia known for its rugged outdoor terrain, four distinct seasons, vibrant business community and friendly people. The majority of West Virginia’s 1.8 million residents live in thriving metropolitan cities of Charleston, Huntington, Wheeling, Parkersburg, Morgantown, Beckley and Martinsburg. The rest of the state, however, is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream and a tourist Mecca. Nearly 75% of West Virginia is covered with forests. More than one million acres are protected state parks, recreation areas or state and national forests. Major points of interest include Harpers Ferry, the New River Gorge National River, the scenic railroad at Cass and the historic homes in the Eastern Panhandle. Tourism is a billion dollar industry in the "Mountain State", as West Virginia’s natural beauty draws people to the Greenbrier and Berkeley Springs resorts and numerous other outdoor recreational activities.
