West Virginia: Metro Region

The gleaming gold of the State Capitol, in Charleston, is a beacon for travelers to the Metro Valley. The region takes its name from the populated zone stretching along some 60 miles of I-64 from the capital city to the railroad and shipping port of Huntington.
You'll find urban comforts here - theaters, museums, universities, restaurants, lodging, shopping and air service. In both towns, broad and beautiful rivers define the landscape and enhance recreation opportunities.
City pleasures there are, but much of this large region is serenely rural, and the natural world is never more than minutes away. Coal, railroad, farm, Native American and African-American history. Sports and recreation of every variety, from baseball games to balloon rides. Heirloom quilts. Fragile wetlands. World-renowned glass. And, in every niche of the Metro Valley, hospitable people who are proud to share their rich region.
