Almost Heaven. West Virginia so inspired John Denver that he compared the beauty of West Virginia to heaven! West Virginia has long drawn people to its mountains, and there are so many hidden gems all over the state. The best way to see West Virginia is by taking a road trip! Take the winding roads to visit charming mountain towns, historic sites, and scenic landscapes. Find your heaven in West Virginia by following this West Virginia Road Trip guide. Huge thank you to the West Virginia Department of Tourism for sponsoring this trip and sharing the Mountain State charm with me!
