How to Have a Fun Vacation in Greater Parkersburg

With the majestic Ohio River as a backdrop, we invite you to come escape, discover and play in Greater Parkersburg.

Just south of Parkersburg, West Virginia, you’ll feel like Tom Sawyer as you paddle down river in an authentic sternwheeler to Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park.

Listening to the steady churning of the engine and feeling the occasional spray of the paddle wheel, you’ll be quietly lulled into believing you’ve escaped every care in the world. The mystery and romance that shrouds the island’s original owners is intriguing and entertaining. As you tour the exquisite mansion you will hear the tale of Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett and their ill-fated relationship to Aaron Burr that eventually cost them their beloved paradise. Visitors to the island (open May-October) also enjoy wagon rides and the mansion’s sprawling lawns.

Back on the mainland continue your exploration into the region’s history [...]

Discover New York’s Amish Trail and Amish Craftsmanship

Well-known for their work ethic, Amish artisans are also famous for their products’ exceptional quality and craftsmanship. As you travel along the Amish Trail, you can expect to find colorful handmade quilts and rugs, detailed indoor and outdoor furniture, fun wooden toys, leather harnesses, as well as fresh baked goods, candies, jams and cheese. However, leave your debit and credit cards at home – they only accept cash. Shops are closed on Sundays, some Wednesdays, certain holidays, for barn raisings, weddings and funerals.

Please remember to respect their privacy and personal property, and don’t photograph them, as it is against their beliefs. As you tour the enchanted countryside, drive cautiously and watch for black, slow-moving, horse-drawn buggies.
