    Charleston: A gateway to the "Mountain State"

    Set at the confluence of the Elk and Kanawha Rivers, Charleston is West Virginia's breezy capital. It's anchored by a lively downtown district, lined with beautiful brick townhouses and handsome public buildings. Spend your time admiring public street art, visiting state museums and devouring cornbread, buttermilk biscuits, rainbow trout and other Appalachian specialties. Beyond exploring the city, Charleston vacation rentals serve as a base for touring West Virginia. Known as the "Mountain State", you'll find yourself immersed in a landscape of lush maple forests, rumbling rivers and snow-capped peaks.

    Discover the Charleston street art scene

    Charleston is famous for its flourishing arts scene, with a host of public installations dotting the city. Start in the downtown district, where you can admire iconic works like the "Hallelujah" metal sculpture and the tiny concrete "Mortar Man". For an Instagram-worthy shot, head to the West Side, where a colorful mosaic mural stretches 6-feet tall. Want to bite into West Virginia? Check out downtown's Capitol Market, where you'll find a smorgasbord of food vendors serving up delicacies in a repurposed freight station warehouse.

    Gaze up at Charleston's State Capitol

    It's hard to miss the magnificent State Capitol, topped by a soaring dome clad in gleaming gold leaf. Championing both art and science, the Clay Center is one of Charleston's top attractions. You can admire contemporary works at the Juliet Art Museum, explore interactive exhibits at the Avampato Discovery Museum and attend symphony orchestra performances at the Maier Foundation Performance Hall. For a glimpse at the city's history, don't miss the West Virginia State Museum. Inside you'll find a treasure trove of archeological finds, Civil War memorabilia, Native American art and even a pair of dancing fleas.

    Arrive for Charleston's fall foliage

    Charleston is at its best in the summer, when the city enjoys long days and plenty of sunshine. It's a great time to relax at riverfront cafes and take in the city's colorful street art scene. Fall is a sweet spot if you're looking to hike in Kanawha State Forest. The weather cools down and the forests explode in a sea of reds, yellows and golds. Thanks to its museums and galleries, Charleston still delivers in the winter. Wrap up warm and you can hit the trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

    Escape to the Charleston countryside

    While West Virginia is known for the Appalachian Mountains, Charleston is surrounded by dense forests, rolling hillsides and green farmland. Want to escape to the countryside? With Charleston vacation rentals you can take your pick of secluded farmhouses. A haven for outdoor lovers, the Kanawha State Forest covers a sprawling 9000-acre footprint. It's laced with scenic hiking trails that wind through wildflower-strewn forests. The fishing at Ellison Pond is fantastic, with the chance to reel in trout, bass and bluegill.
