Welcome to West Virginia

West Virginia is a state in the Appalachian and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered by Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, Ohio to the northwest, and Pennsylvania and Maryland to the northeast. The capital and largest city is Charleston. The state has a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities, including skiing, whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and hunting. The southwestern portion of the state (including Huntington and Charleston), and parts of the Eastern Panhandle east of the Appalachians experience hot, humid summers and mild winters. The rest of the state generally has warm to hot, humid summers and cool to cold winters, increasing in severity with elevation. Some southern highland areas have moderate winter temperatures and somewhat cooler summer temperatures.
