West Virginia Department of Tourism Launches Culinary Trail



The West Virginia Culinary Trail aims to highlight the must-visit restaurants across the Mountain State that have been selected by the inaugural class of West Virginia Chef Ambassadors. Participants will earn prizes fit for a foodie by checking in at participating restaurants.

“We invite travelers from near and far to put the West Virginia Culinary Trail on their must-do list this winter and beyond,” said West Virginia Tourism Secretary Chelsea Ruby. “While you’re tasting the best dishes the Mountain State has to offer, you might as well enjoy a side of adventure too. Plan a foodie road trip and stay a while in Almost Heaven.”

By highlighting the many world-class and unique dining destinations available to travelers in West Virginia, the Culinary Trail will encourage visitors to add a savory stop to their next adventure. Inspired by the favorite stops of the current class of Chef Ambassadors, restaurants across the state are included in this program. As new Chef Ambassadors join the program, the Culinary Trail will be updated to include their selections.
