Beckley – Raleigh County, WV

Beckley Raleigh County Southern West Virginia
Adventure and Attractions

Looking for adventure? Mild or wild, the possibilities are endless. Located in the heart of Southern West Virginia, Beckley-Raleigh County is home to authentic Mountain State culture. Discover West Virginia arts and crafts at Tamarack, journey deep below the earth in our exhibition coal mine or take in a baseball game.

Since we live in the mountains, we know a lot about how to have fun outside. From bikes to baseball, horseback riding to zip lines, ATV courses to downhill skiing, and literally everything in between—we’ve got it. Spectacular mountain golf courses and the world’s best whitewater keep people coming back every year!

Our parks and forests are the perfect setting for some outdoor adventure and activity. And we’re proud of the endless natural assets. The National Parks of Southern West Virginia, premiere state parks and county & city recreation areas attract over 3 million visitors to the area every year! These parks are home to some of the best outdoor adventure anywhere in the country.

Ours is an area rich in West Virginia history. A wide variety of heritage sites can be found throughout this part of the mountains. Civil war, colonial life, and early explorers all helped shape our culture, as did our coalfields and railroads. You won’t want to miss Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. A tour takes you underground and gives a general overview of the Mine and history of coal mining in our region. Veteran miners act as guides to give in-depth information on the methods of mining used and the equipment you see. In addition to the Mine, you can tour the period coal camp buildings situated throughout the grounds.

Discover West Virginia arts at Tamarack—the striking, red peaked roof draws over half a million visitors annually into a place full of visual beauty, the sights and sounds of Appalachia and some wonderfully distinctive aromas. You will be astounded when you enter the state’s premier artisan center with the finest textiles, jewelry, art, glass and pottery—plus woodwork and many other handcrafted items. Come for the food, a rest stop or inspiration. Stay for the mountain music, hospitable people and uniqueness of all things artistic and cultural. There are always new and interesting exhibits and things happening in the gallery and theatre.

Enjoy professional theatre under the stars at the spectacular Cliffside Amphitheatre in Grandview National Park. Theatre West Virginia produces the critically acclaimed historical drama, “Hatfields and McCoys”—sharing the story of the infamous family feud.

One thing you can definitely say about Southern West Virginia: we LOVE to celebrate! We put together some of the best festivals you’ll ever attend, and we bring the music, food, and culture to go with them. With plenty of lodging choices, hotels, resorts, cabins and vacation rentals surrounded by an abundance of restaurants, you’ll want to stay awhile in Beckley-Raleigh County. It’s all here and it’s all steeped in southern charm and hospitality.
