What to do???

We will be staying near Lewisburg for a week. We have 4 adults, 4 teenagers (18, 16,16, 16), and 4 toddlers (4, 3, and twin 20 month olds). We are looking for things to do especially for the little ones. We don't mind driving places (no more than 1 and half hours, though). I have done a lot of research but just wanted to get the "expert's" advice in case I am missing anything. Thanks for any and all ideas. We have a wide circle of interests so....no holds barred!

Not much for the toddlers and twins.

In the immediate Lewisburg area you will have a couple underground caverns.


An hour or so north would be Snowshoe ski resort. A few activities there during summer months. I think there might be mountain biking and horseback rides.


Just off the hill at Snowshoe would be Cass Scenic Railroad and Green Bank Observatory.



To the west on I 64 out of Lewisburg would be Beckley. Exhibition Coal Mine would be educational. If there during summer months. Outdoor dramas at Grandview Park would be good evening's entertainment.




Either west on RT 60 or around through Beckley and up RT 19. Fayetteville. Wide variety of activities like rock climbing, rafting, swimming, biking, hiking, zip lines, etc.....


If the teens are boys and want excitment. Twin 1/2 mile (60+mph) long zip lines to race on plus ATV rentals and lessons. South of Beckley at Sophia.

When is your trip??

The West Virginia State Fair starts Friday, August 13 thru Saturday Aug. 21.

TONS of things to keep everyone busy for ...days if you want. Even the toddlers. Some people camp there and spend the whole week there.


The above poster mentioned Theatre West Virginia shows at Grandview Park in Beckley. It will be only about 45 minutes from Lewisburg...easy Interstate drive the whole way.

They are doing Willie Wonka this summer..which should be terrific!! Show dates are Aug. 3, 7, 11, 13, 17 and 21.

Thanks, lots of great information and ideas. I am going to have a lot to research. Unfortunately, the little ones are leaving before the state fair begins but we might be able to catch it on the first day. sounds like fun.

Can't thank you enough for the ideas!!!
