Autumn is by far and away the best season of the year. This is because you get to experience all of the truly wonderful things about the outdoors. These are just some of the great things that you can find in West Virginia in the fall.
The biggest tourist draw that you will notice here in the fall is the foliage. Our mountains and hillsides come alive with a vibrant rainbow of colors beginning this weekend. You can take a drive down any highway, byway, or country road and you're sure to find a scene that would have made even Norman Rockwell envious. From the firey red leaves of the maples to the brilliant yellows of the poplars, you will want to bring your camera when you visit the Mountain State.
Another great reason to swing on in for a spell is our state's homegrown harvest. West Virginia has a plethora of fresh fruits and veggies planted and raised right here. You will find succulent apples -- figi, granny smith and the honey crisp. You can get your hands on fresh greens, turnips, melons, squash, peaches and plums. There are several farmers’ markets that bring their harvests right to you at very affordable prices.
Our best asset of all -- and your best reason to get out here -- is our hospitality. We have a huge number of wonderful B&Bs, plush hotels and scenic campgrounds for all of you outdoor enthusiasts. The folks here are warm and welcoming. We'll help you find your way around. We can point you in the direction of a great home-cooked meal. You may arrive here a stranger, but by the time you leave West Virginia you will be more than a welcome friend. You'll be family!
