Take in some of the area’s unique sights by visiting the West Virginia Capitol Complex. The Capitol building was constructed in three stages from 1924 – 1932. It was designed by famed architect Cass Gilbert and features a 293-foot golden dome (the dome is covered with 23 ½ karat gold leaf, which was applied to the copper and lead roof in tiny squares). The Complex is also where you’ll find the Governor’s Mansion and the West Virginia State Museum and Culture Center. If you’d like to shop for seasonal items from local farmers, growers and vendors, head to the Capitol Market. This outdoor market is located in a restored freight train station from the 1800s – just minutes from the Capitol Complex.
To enjoy some great views, make your way to Haddad Riverfront Park! The park overlooks the Kanawha River and downtown Charleston, and on occasion there will be a free concert or event taking place there. For those seeking outdoor recreation, Kanawha State Forest is the place to go. Located just outside the city, this 9,300 acre recreation area offers opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, picnicking and other activities. There is also an outdoor pool that’s open seasonally. After a day of exploring the area, one of our Charleston hotels is a great place to relax and unwind.
