Having heard about Oglebay's Festival of Lights for years, our family finally decided to make the 90 minute drive to see it. Our family (ages 12-87) were all underwhelmed by the light display.

We loved being at Olgebay and staying at the Lodge. However, upon leaving I fell on ice on their sidewalk that was not salted. I broke my ankle and have been trying to have them be responsible for out of pocket expenses, which they refuse to do. Apparently, West Virginia has a law that gives them immunity for all places...

The ski and snowboarding slope at Oglebay is small but perfect for a fun afternoon. The lift runs efficiently and quickly. The lodge is close, though a bit crowded. I would go back for a relaxed day of easy boarding.

This city park is beyond compare. It is rustic, hilly and you can see for miles from the Lodge. I've gone there for 60 years and have found no city park that compares.

Have rented cabins there yearly for 45 years. Oglebay has always been part of my life, from attending Day Camp in the 1950's to supporting the Mansion Museum today. A beautiful place to just. "Be."

One of the largest city parks in America, with 3 regular golf courses and one par three course, acres and acres of beautiful landscape and many cabins as well as the lodge, Oglebay is a marvelous location for a refreshing, quiet getaway.

We really enjoy Christmas and years ago did a large display and love seeing Christmas lights in different settings. This one is so neat to drive through. In the summer it is a beautiful place to also visit
