For one of the most unique shopping-centered getaways, begin in Morgantown where there’s a mix of local boutiques and national retailers. Warm up with a cup of coffee and a bagel from Blue Moose Café then spend the morning strolling downtown browsing local shops like River Fair Trade, Fig Leaf Boutique, or the Antiques Walk at Seneca Center. Eat lunch at Black Bear Burritos then drive south to Thornton to Allegheny Treenware where you can tour the studio and see how the award-winning wooden utensils are made. Later, head to Clarksburg for dinner at The Caboose and your choice of lodging.
Begin your day with breakfast at The Bluebird before the quick trip south to Weston. In the morning, explore downtown with a visit to West Virginia American Art Glass for exquisite gems and glass blowing demonstrations or find a unique treasure at Roshell’s Antiques & Collectibles. For lunch, order the bistro fries at Thyme Bistro and finish the meal with a sweet treat from the Ice Cream Barn. Next, continue south on I-79 to the Flatwoods Factory Outlets to check out the Fiesta Outlet for quality, colorful dinnerware made in the state. After, continue south then take Route 119 North toward Spencer where you can browse local shops, dine on a home-cooked meal at the Country Table, and spend the night at the Arnott House.
Rise mid-morning with a scrumptious breakfast then head to the top of town for a visit to the Chestnut Ridge Artist Colony. Here, browse intricate ironwork from Jeff Fetty Designs, delicate necklaces from THL Jewelry, and intricate wood works from Holcomb Woodworking. You can also purchase a bottle of wine from the Chestnut Ridge Winery to take with you for later. When you’re finished, stop for lunch at Church Street Deli before taking Route 14 N to the greater Parkersburg area where you can spend your afternoon browsing local shops like Berdine’s 5 & Dime, Gift Gallery of Vienna, and Peyton & Peppy Boutqiue. End the day with dinner at Colombo’s Italian Restaurant followed by a luxury night’s sleep at The Blennerhassett Hotel.
