Let Mountaineer Country be your Home Away from Home

School spirit and small town pride run deep in the Mountaineer Country region. Home to West Virginia University, Morgantown is a bustling college community with sports, unique restaurants, art museums and outdoor recreation. Just outside the city is Coopers Rock State Forest, a popular hiking and biking area. The overlook here provides stunning views of the Cheat River valley that you won’t want to miss.

South of Morgantown you’ll find the quaint town of Fairmont, where culture and heritage meet scenic waterfalls and historic state parks. Head over to Country Club Bakery, the birthplace of West Virginia’s famous food–pepperoni rolls. This bakery has been delighting folks from both near and far since 1927. Further your history lesson with a visit to Prickett’s Fort State Park, a reconstructed fort from colonial times.

Stop by Bridgeport and Clarksburg while you’re in the area to tee off at an 18-hole championship golf course or stroll past historic homes. These towns offer both causal eateries and fine dining establishments for you to indulge in. A trip to this area is sure to be one to remember!
