Featured Country Road Trip of the Week
Your road trip begins now.
This week's winding road leads from Cacapon Resort State Park to the historic spa town of Berkeley Springs. Cacapon Resort State Park is home to cozy cabins, comfortable lodge rooms and one of the most unique lodging options in the area the Old Inn, a vintage 12-room inn overlooking the resort's 18-hole championship golf course. This unique log structure is the perfect group getaway for fall, featuring stunning stone fireplaces and enough space to accommodate up to 32 guests.
From Cacapon Resort State Park, travel on U.S. 522 to West Virginia's famous spa town, Berkeley Springs. Known for its art galleries, boutique shops and award-winning restaurants, this charming small town is a must-visit this fall. While on the road trip, take in a “bonus view” with a short side trip west on W.Va. 9 to Panorama Overlook, which offers awe-inspiring views of three states and two rivers.
As your fall travels continue around the Mountain State, don’t forget to share photos from your autumn adventures using #AlmostHeaven.
