Wheeling-Ohio County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB)

Wheeling, WV

Located at the former capital of the state in the northern panhandle is the history-rich city of Wheeling. After National Road, the nation’s first roadway, was created Wheeling became the gateway to the west. Discover the community’s culture at the Capitol Theatre, an Ohio Valley icon since 1928. Take your kids to Oglebay’s Good Zoo and explore the outback exhibit and lorikeet landing. If you’re hungry, head down to Coleman’s Fish Market to try the famous fish sandwich.

Conveniently located on the banks of the Ohio River, just sixty miles from Pittsburgh, Wheeling offers big city attractions with a small city feel. Why Wheeling you ask? Why not is a better question.
