COVID-19 resources for local tourism partners, businesses and the Mercer County community


Get out and explore! Just take off along the trails. The hardest part is choosing which. Take to the dirt track, or the winding Hatfield-McCoy Trails, since they’re one of the largest ATV trail systems in the nation.

There’s also our 3 state parks, or local park gems. Take in one of the best mountain views from Pinnacle Rock, or get deep into the Bluestone Gorge by swooping thousands feet down the aerial tramway from Pipestem State Park. (Secret: there’s a gourmet restaurant hidden down there!)

The best way to enjoy the ol’-time stuff is aboard the Ridge Runner mini train. Bring the whole family for a trip back to the old days at the classic drive-in theater, or with a round of bowling.

And what’s a family retreat without the great American game?  We’re home to the closest— and dare we say most spirited?— baseball rivalry in the country. A mere 12 miles separate our Bluefield Blue Jays and Princeton Rays, who make America’s favorite pastime proud with skill and sportsmanship.

That’s only the beginning of our sporty side. Golf, baseball, soccer. You name it, and let’s play!
