    Winter is also a great time for a "guys only" getaway, because the fishing is good and small game hunting seasons are in effect during January and February. If you like to watch the winter weather from the comfort of the great indoors, you might even book a spa package at one of the many great resorts or state parks.

    From Main Street to malls, the Mountain State offers fashionable, unique and fine-quality products. West Virginia artists can help you create the holiday setting with products that can be purchased directly from the artist, or from shops that can be found in Tamarack and MountainMade. Find something for everyone.

    In Conclusion...

    Whether you prefer the excitement of city life, picturesque main streets of a small town, or quiet mountain serenity, there is a place in West Virginia just for you.

    The state is divided into nine regions, each of which has something unique to offer. Best known for its scenic beauty, the Mountain State offers numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation. In addition, you'll find small towns with warmth and charm.

    If you prefer something more fast-paced, the state's cities offer a variety of daytime activities as well as an exciting night life.

    There are literally dozens of wonderful little towns in West Virginia. Privately-owned shops, unique attractions and small-town warmth permeate the state. Visitors can take a quick weekend jaunt or a week-long adventure, away from the big city and feel truly refreshed by the clean air, warm greetings and slower pace offered by these "gems."

    Many visitors to West Virginia turn into residents once they realize how close some of these towns are to major cities. For example, Shepherdstown is only about eighty miles from both Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
