The votes are in and Lewisburg, West Virginia is voted the coolest small town in America according to Budget Travel Magazine.
Friday was the final day to cast your ballot.
By Friday afternoon our neighbors to the north came out on top.
Out of 437,000 nationwide votes Lewisburg got 139,000 making it the overwhelming winner.
The town will be featured in Budget Travel Magazine this coming September.
Lewisburg voted coolest small town in America.

Lewisburg, W.Va. (Pop. 3,497)
This Allegheny Mountains town is heralded for two major food events: In April, the mayor dresses up like Willy Wonka for the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival, which celebrates all things cocoa with a week of chocolate-themed tastings and dinners. October brings the Taste of Our Towns (or TOOT, as the locals call it), when restaurants dish out their best-known items at food stands scattered downtown and live bands play on three open-air stages. Annual favorites like the General Lewis Inn's pecan pie disappear fast. The town is also home to one of only four Carnegie Halls (carnegiehallwv.com) in the world, which draws big-name musicians and theater productions to the remote area. And just this past September, rock-violin band the Dueling Fiddlers shot a music video at local wine bar Red Key 3.

Blackwater Falls is a wonderful state park with lots of hiking and views. If you're a golfer, then check out Canaan Valley (about 10 miles from Blackwater).

New River Gorge Bridge Day

Celebrate Bridge Day's 33rd Anniversary in West Virginia

Thank you to all that attended this year's Bridge Day! Plan to attend the 33rd Annual Bridge Day Festival in West Virginia on October 20, 2012! Right here, right in the middle of the Mountain State, we celebrate the outdoors with a show you've got to experience to believe. We've got a bridge, and we've got a gorge- plan to jump into it!

This festival, the state's largest, is all about living. Our setting, the New River Gorge, is one of the world?s oldest places, and BASE jumping is one of the world's most cutting edge sports. Above the famous white water rafting on the New River, jumpers, rappelers, and thousands and thousands of onlookers gather for the state's biggest party of the year.

It?s fall. It?s time. Welcome To West Virginia! Welcome to Bridge Day!

All About Bridge Day

Everything you need to know about the festival is right here, including...

On the other hand, St. Nick is getting ready to make his appearance and this means festive times in the New River Gorge . Whether you need to work on your Christmas list or just want to get into the holiday spirit, you?ll find everything you?re looking for right by the Bridge. Shopping There are plenty of shopping options in this area, especially if you?re looking for something a little different than a department store...
