West Virginia’s capital city, Charleston has much to offer. Take your time and spend one or two days here. Downtown, stroll along Capitol Street’s tree-lined brick sidewalks and explore the unique shops and eateries. Visit Taylor Books for a hand-made specialty coffee drink, and pick up a piece of local artwork in the Annex Gallery. For more tasty treats, stop in at Ellen’s Homemade Ice Cream across the street, or head north to the Capitol Market, where fresh vegetables, artisan chocolates hand-crafted in West Virginia, books by local authors, and much more can be found.

Take the kids to the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences to experience the ElectricSky Theater and the Avampato Discovery Museum, or, leave them behind and take time to enjoy the art gallery and a concert by the West Virginia Symphony. If you have time, spend an evening at a West Virginia Power baseball game.
