My home state of West Virginia is known as “the mountain state” for good reason. It’s the only state located completely inside the Appalachian Mountains. And its average elevation is higher than any other state east of the Mississippi.

Combine that with a unique culture and heritage, and West Virginia makes a fantastic place to experience. Picturesque landscapes can be explored in a plethora of ways.

From whitewater rafting in the summer to skiing in the winter, West Virginia offers something for every outdoor enthusiast.

And if you prefer to sit back and enjoy those scenic mountain views, there are plenty of ways to do that too. Shopping and exploring history are just a few.

Beckley is one of the best towns from which to explore authentic West Virginia. Located in the southern part of the state, it’s firmly rooted in the culture that defines West Virginia.

There’s also plenty to do, including adventures in the country’s newest national park, New River Gorge. The park is located 15 – 30 minutes from Beckley, depending on what part of the park you’re visiting. New River Gorge National Park is a fantastic place to raft or float as well as view the bridge that serves as the parks’ most well-known landmark.

Nearby Winterplace Ski Resort offers skiing in the winter and hiking and biking in warmer weather. Exhibition Coal Mine provides a peak into the industry vital to the state. And the Tamarack features tons of West Virginia-made goods to take home.

If the West Virginia country roads are calling you, here are 11 hotels in and around Beckley from which to explore them.
