Charleston is the capital of West Virginia. It is a waterfront town, with pleasure boats and jet skis spotted on the river each evening. Capitol Street is the center of town; that’s where you’ll find restaurants, pubs, homemade ice cream, bookstores, and the Art Walk. Just a few blocks down is the Capitol Market, featuring fresh produce from local farms.

From the golden dome of the capitol across the calm waters of the Kanawha River to the canopy of green shading the string-lit Capitol Street, Charleston is a colorful city. If you find yourself in need of a friendly face or a peaceful Appalachian hike, the city of Charleston will always be happy to provide a helping hand.
