Things to See and Do

We’re Actually More Than Just The World’s Best White Water

What are you looking for in a vacation?

Adventure. Relaxation. A way to just… recharge the batteries. Well, this is that place.

The New River Gorge didn’t have to be much more that what it is: A crack in the world that’s one of the oldest (and most beautiful) places on earth. And, naturally, the rapids became nature’s perfect rollercoaster. It actually is the world’s best white water.

But we’re more than just rafting…

Rock Climbing

Anyone can climb. Kids and adults. No experience necessary. Bonus: The New River Gorge is one of the world’s most famous rock climbing destinations. So it’s perfect for beginners and experts alike. If you’re looking to broaden your vacation horizons, you won’t find a better place than here.

Horseback Riding

Get back to where you once belong… on a horse. Seriously. Horseback riding is some big time fun, especially when you pair it with the beauty of the New River Gorge. Is it possible to commute to work on a horse around here? Yes. Is it better to make it part of your vacation to West Virginia? Absolutely.

Mountain Biking

This is NOT like riding at home. Mountain biking around the gorge is like being a kid again. And if you are a kid, well, it’s like the most perfect way to ride a bike ever. Once you get on the trails here in the gorge, riding on pavement just won’t ever be the same.

What’s The Word? Oh Yeah… MORE.

So many more activities, in fact, that it’s better to just list as much as we can…

  • ATV off road riding
  • Jet Boat rides in the gorge
  • Ziplines
  • Canopy tours
  • Disc Golf
  • Real Golf (mountain courses!)
  • Shopping
  • Tons of history
  • Even more history on top of that
  • Scenic drives
  • Some of the best hiking you’ll ever find

And that’s pretty much it. If you don’t count all the food and dining, exploring, fishing, swimming, wildflower hunting… the list goes on.
