Charleston West Virginia [7 Must See Attractions]

Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. Diversify your portfolio as much as possible. You do not want to have all of your investment funds in only one type of investment. Spread them out over stocks, real estate, and other investments in order to protect yourself should something bad happen in one area of the investment market.

    Today we are visiting 7 must see attractions in Charleston West Virginia.

    You may be surprised to discover that Charleston is such a beautiful destination. It sits in the Kanawha river valley surrounded by forested mountain slopes on all sides. Charleston West Virginia is a place not to be missed when you visit the mountain state.

    Today we will be visiting 7 must see attractions in Charleston West Virginia starting with the state capitol building. It is surrounded by monuments, and features a dome covered in gold leaf. One great thing about the West Virginia State Capitol is that you can go inside, something I highly recommend.

    The next must see attraction is the West Virginia Veterans Memorial on the capitol grounds. There are actually several monuments to see, one for gold star families, women veterans, and finally one for all the heroes who have died in war.

    While on the West Virginia Capitol Building grounds be sure to visit the West Virginia State Museum. This museum is very well put together, and covers the history of West Virginia from pre-historic times through the present day.

    From the West Virginia State Museum we go on to the Kanawha river walk. The section directly across the street from the capitol building is very nice, and offers views of the University of Charleston.

    Next we are on to the Carriage Trail. This beautiful forested trail has a small park at the bottom, and offers some of the best views of the city at the top.

    You may be hungry after climbing the carriage trail, and for that I recommend going to the historic Capital Street in downtown Charleston. There you will find several great restaurants.

    Just up the street is the Capital Street Market. This trendy historic market also has a lot of great options for getting something to eat. It is also a great place to get a bottle of wine, some chocolates, or local hand crafts.

    We end our visit with two young people who have spent a lot of time working closely with he local community to learn more about the people who live in this beautiful city.

    1. I think a title page between your intro and the start of the destination- just white on black lettering saying something like "Charelston West Virginia- Dec 10 2021" would probably clear up most of the confusion that you got from the comments. I'd request Blackwater Falls/Senecca Rocks area video. With Corridor H/route 48 going in connecting WV to DC more directly it will become a more popular destination in the coming years.
