I Am Greenbrier County

Let me take you there.

Imagine a tranquil river teaming with fish, outside a summer-camp where a canoe may be waiting to take you on an early morning ride.

If fishing is not your thing, do you like exploring? How about spending the day spelunking? Greenbrier County has several caves within easy driving distance to one another: Organ Cave and Lost World.

Should you crave more excitement, then how about visiting Fairlea in August, when the State Fair comes to town. This event will take more than one day to see everything.

Visit the cattle barns; see the draft horses! Speaking of horses, stay and watch the horse racing in the Grandstand. Don’t forget to visit the midway with the kids.

These are just a few of the many reasons why I love West Virginia. I could talk about my wonderful state all day. The people you encounter there on any given day are not the image that is portrayed by outsiders. When you come to West Virginia, you will find a group of hard-working, dedicated loyal people to their state. Give us a try, and then you will know why we are Wild and Wonderful West Virginia.
