Please give me one good reason to visit West Virginia

I would like to plan a tour of the U.S.A.
Would you help me decide where to go by giving us one good reason to visit your State.
Thanks

Don't listen to Trucker, I wouldn't visit that part of the state either. The Eastern Panhandle is rich in civil war history (Harpers Ferry, Charles Town - where John Brown was tried). It is a stones throw from Antietam and a short drive up to Gettysburg. It's also an hour and a half or so from Baltimore and/or DC.

Also, I'm a big fan of Morgantown where I went to undergrad and law school. I'd take in a football game up there (just don't wear the colors of the team WVU is playing). Lots of other outdoorsy things to do in the state from whitewater rafting to skiing to jumping off a big ole freakin bridge on Bridge Day if that's your thing.

Contradiction, All of the bold is in my part of the state.., But MBJ is right, there is a lot of great things to do in WV, Bridge day is amazing, where else can you watch 1000+ people base jump in a weekend.The New river is great for White Water rafting, The Exhibition coal mine in Beckley is really cool if you have never been in a coal mine. Plus we have the Hatfield and McCoy trails for four wheeling, they are among the best trails in the US. WVU football games are great, just don't go to Marshall for a game.. and the Civil War sites that MBJ mentioned are amazing, gives you a real feeling of history.
