Fayetteville, West Virginia

The next stop on the trip is Fayetteville, West Virginia—nestled in the heart of the New River Gorge. An eclectic mix of old and new, the town of Fayetteville offers vintage shops, exceptional culinary fare and sightseeing tours. Catch a play at the historic Fayette Theatre, stroll the quite streets, take the kids to “Playetteville” at the Town Park, or simply enjoy the sights and sounds of this small town gem.

Bring a bit of excitement to your stay with whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, ziplining and more. Nearby you will find the world-famous New River Gorge Bridge, the third longest single-arch bridge in the world. Experience the thrill of BASE jumping or enjoy a stroll across the bridge—the third Saturday of October, Bridge Day. Or, walk along the catwalk —below the bridge and more than 800 feet above the River.

After a fun filled day, grab a bite at one of the area restaurants—barbeque, Mexican, pizza, sandwiches and more—then wind down in one of Fayetteville’s historic B&B’s in the heart of downtown or a secluded cabins just outside of town.
