Almost heaven, West Virginia. That's how John Denver referred to the state in his American classic "Take Me Home, Country Roads," one of West Virginia's four state songs. (In case you're wondering, the other three are "The West Virginia Hills," "This Is My West Virginia" and "West Virginia, My Home Sweet Home.")
West Virginia is indeed one of the most sublime states in the U.S. Yet it isn't at the top of many travelers' bucket lists (if it even has a place on those lists at all).
It's time to change your mind about West Virginia, and if you've found yourself on this page, chances are you're ready for the challenge – and a memorable experience.
