Spring Break in WV
Most may not think of our Wild and Wonderful state as an ideal spring break location, however, this is not the case. Snow or shine there are a ton of great options of activities to make your spring break fun and active. Take a hike up to the top of Seneca Rocks or ski in Canaan Valley. Your spring break doesn't have to be boring, it can be Wild and Wonderful.
Canaan Valley is one of the most unique destinations in West Virginia. With West Virginia's crazy weather, don't be surprised to still see snow on the slopes. In addition to winter sports, you can tube, cross-country ski or even ice skate here. Canaan Valley is one of the best places to take your family for a winter vacation, a ski weekend, or spring break! If you are "unlucky" enough to miss the powder, there are some gorgeous trails to hike and a boardwalk to fill your time.
This is most definitely one, if not the most famous hike in West Virginia. While this hike is intermediate in level, you may want to brave the hike to get to the beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. This hike is not for the faint of heart, the peak will literally take your breath away. Wear some good hiking shoes and take water, because this trek is not a short one. If you are just looking to get some exercise, I would suggest only doing a section of the trail.
Some of West Virginia's best-kept secrets are underground. Organ Cave is definitely one of the best places to explore if you are looking to take the path less traveled. According to organcave.com, "This historic natural cave has over 45 miles of mapped passages with over 200 leads yet to be mapped and surveyed." Walking tours are held by friendly, locals all year long. This location, in Greenbrier County, would make for a great day trip or weekend getaway.
