There are also some kid-friendly restaurants on Charleston's east side. Heading east on Washington Street, you'll find a Gino's Pizza and Tudor's Biscuit World. Also on Washington, closer to the WV State Capitol, you'll find a McDonald's, Wendy's and Domino's. The WV Capitol Complex is really cool for kids and the WV State Museum in the Cultural Center is amazing.... and FREE!
