“The Greenbrier River Trail is a 78-mile former railroad line with uninterrupted hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities. The trail cuts through some of the most remote areas in the state making this the perfect escape from reality.”
Carnegie Hall, one of only four still open in operation worldwide, showcases a wide-ranging repertoire of music from all over the globe.
The Greenbrier Resort is a “National Historic Landmark and world-class resort that has been welcoming guests from around the world since 1778. The bunker at The Greenbrier Resort would house Congress should there be a nuclear fallout. During its Eisenhower-era use it could accommodate 1,100 people in the 112,544-square-foot space. Today, you can tour the facility to get an in-depth look behind the hidden doors.”
West Virginia Renaissance Festival showcases equestrian performances, circus acts, comedy, live music, and magic. The festival is held at Hollow Hills Farm 10 minutes from the fairgrounds. For additional information on the Renaissance Festival check out their website at www.wvrenfest.com .
