Looking for Memorial weekend fun — Visit Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Memorial Day is Fayetteville’s big kickoff to the summer season, starting with the parade and then it’s non-stop from Friday on.

When it comes to spending Memorial weekend here — attached to the national park there are cool small towns like Fayetteville. According to Visit Fayetteville’s executive director Tabitha Stover, our national park spans three counties.

“There’s live music at about every venue in town this coming weekend. Right now, where the season is kicked off, we have new shops in town. We have another new restaurant; Cathedral’s back open. We’re ready for people,” said Stover. “We have the Gaines estate. There’s still availability, there’s lodging — you can call up here and we can help you out, and there’s a lot to get into.”

There’s also the Spring Fling at the national park.

“They have guided hikes, and ranger programs all weekend long. It’s almost overwhelming,” Stover said. “I’m like, ‘what are we going to do this weekend,’ farmer’s market’s back up.”

Southern West Virginia has outdoor activities immersed in nature covered.

“You could spend, you know, a couple of days up here where you’re gonna see the bridge,” said Stover. “You can do the whitewater rafting, rock climbing, hiking for days, and then kind of see Fayetteville. And then you can drive to the southern end of the park where you’ve got Sandstone Falls, Grandview.”

We live in one of the prettiest places. You can go to Kanawha Falls.

“Paddle out to the waterfalls. And then there’s more secret waterfalls behind there, and that’s just spectacular,” Stover said. “And I feel like really underrated that people don’t realize that’s right here in our backyard. Going out into the park anywhere, like all of these scenic overlooks, there’s just a lot to see and explore.”
