Charleston, WV, West Virginia's capital city, is splendidly situated at the juncture of the Kanawha and Elk Rivers. Three major interstates also intersect here, making it an extremely convenient destination for residents, as well as visitors looking for an affordable getaway. Charleston captivates the history one would expect from a capital city, however, a developing arts scene and its positioning alongside the river make it a focal point for culture and recreation also. Some of which include the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences, "Mountain Stage" with Larry Groce which has hosted live performances of all styles for over 30 and a weekly show that is heard on more than 200 NPR stations, J.Q. Dickinson Salt Works and the impressive State Capitol. Don't miss out on all the Appalachian culture this impressive city has to offer year-round. Plan your trip around the annual Vandalia Gathering or the FestivALL.
