Meet every wanderluster’s globe-trotting hero, the Roaming Gnome, right here in WV!


Travelocity’s famous Roaming Gnome is heading across West Virginia!

The Roaming Gnome had so much fun eating and drinking his way through West Virginia in 2016, he’s coming back for more. Join him this month as he tours cultural landmarks, resorts and restaurants!

We got the inside scoop on his schedule— but remember, he’s a wanderer, so he takes his time and follows the adventure. He’s just exploring as he goes, without a strict timeline.

Snap a photo!
