Both of my parents are from Parkersburg and we make a yearly trip to visit family still in Parkersburg. Parkersburg is a great area, it has a wide variety of people. It's town varies in living standards. You may be in the slumps 1 minute, make a right turn and you see a development of houses $500,000+.
Blennerhasset Island is a great place to visit too. It's located on the Ohio River, about 15 miles from Parkersburg.
While driving through Charleston, we always stop at an attraction called "Tamarak"
It's a great place to rest after a long drive, look at some cool things, and get some really good food.
"TAMARAK" is a large assortment of West Virginia Crafts and is located at Exit 45 off of Interstate 77/64 and about 50 miles South of Charleston at Beckley, WV. Also, located there is a rest stop type location with gasoline, food, etc.

Plan your trip to the East Coast (the Atlantic Ocean will be at Virginia Beach, Virginia.....you'll have dipped your "toe" in both oceans) and while traveling I-64 (from St. Louis, MO to Virginia Beach, VA) plan to make a lot of scenic side tours throughout West Virginia (they don't call it "Almost Heaven" for nothing..). The State and National Parks ( West Virginia Division of Tourism | West Virginia Culture and Heritage | Fairs, Festivals, Railroads, Hand-Blown Glass, Handmade Arts and Crafts )are beautiful and if you want to do some "offroading" in your jeep, there will be great places in West Virginia/Virginia ( Northeast 4x4 Off Road Clubs and Associations Directory )

It is simple the best reason to come check out WV, is the abundant trees and mountainous terrain, our war history, but lets not forget the MOTH MAN!

Not to mention all the good camping. Lets face it I don't think many of the cities are worth checking out. But the woodland areas are great. So give it some thought, and if you don't like mountains, war, monsters, or out doors then just stay out of our state lol Just joking.

Here's an example of West Virginia's splendor, the world famous resort hotel "THE GREENBRIER", nestled in the mountains at White Sulphur Springs, WV. And, the sulphur spring from which it derived it's name and, one of it's golf courses built from the "ground up" on the Hotel's abandoned airport.

Check out the New River Gorge Bridge, Cooper's Rock, get a speeding ticket in Summersville, or go to Charleston to see the chemical plants and what they have done to the indiginous peoples.

great people and great outdoors

My wife and I visited West Virginia a few month ago. We did the zip line tour and a river tour with Treetops Canopy Tour New River Gorge West Virginia - Adventures on the Gorge. This was a first class operation with highly qualified and skilled guides. Everyone we met was friendly and we had a great time.
