Mercer County: Through the Lens

Last updated: August 30, 2021

We have to admit — we enjoy scrolling through our Instagram feed just a much as the next person — maybe even more. But, can you blame us? There’s just so much beauty, adventure and all around cool things happening in Mercer County that there’s too much to capture on our own. And, honestly, we’d be missing out if we didn’t take some time to admire the work of others. It’s all about perspective, anyway, and we love seeing our area through the lens of locals and visitors.

You may have noticed our #visitmercerwv and #explore304, which we started using to share others’ passion for the place we live, work and play. Everyone has a favorite place in Mercer County — whether its a cascading waterfall or the twist and turns of an ATV Trail — and we want to see them all! Please tag us @visitmercerwv and use the hashtags mentioned, so that we can show off your work on our Instagram or Facebook.

We want to thank some of our top contributors (their handles are included under the photos) for sharing these brief moments of wonder and awe and helping tell Mercer County’s story. We hope it entices you to explore the rich beauty and heritage of our home.
