A local tourist destination is happy after receiving another award from TripAdvisor.
TripAdvisor awarded the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Youth Museum with a 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. It's the third consecutive year that the museum has received the honor. TripAdvisor is the world's largest travel site. A solid review from them makes employees at the museum proud of their accomplishment.
"You can imagine my surprise the other day when music blared and it said we had won for the third straight year the TripAdvisor's award of excellence which is such an honor for us and we're so pleased. So many people come to us because they heard about us on TripAdvisor" said Leslie Baker.
TripAdvisor uses a mathematical equation to help determine their honorees.
