My wife, our 15 month old daughter, and I are interested in spending a few days in WV in Late March when we have time off (we will be driving from the DC area). We are constrained to this time window (specifically March 27th - April 2nd). I'm looking for (a) suggestions for activities in the area, and (b) trying to understand if things are shuttered that time of year or not.
I understand this is proper "shoulder season" time as the skiing is done, but things will still look wintry and nighttime temps will be low.
What are some optional activities in the area? We are thinking short dayhikes with the kiddo in a backpack. Is it possible to easily access the west side of Dolly Sods from the backside of Timberline (google maps shows roads up there, and I figure 75 on the east side will still be snowed in / gated). Also thinking just stuff around Blackwater Falls SP.
Will restaurants / etc be open in the Davis area at this time?
As an alternative, what would be options around the Lake Summersville area?
